Synopsis: The Psychology of Exercise: Integrating Theory and Practice, third edition, continues to weave together theory, research, application, and intervention to provide readers with a solid foundation in exercise psychology. In this accessible, user-friendly book, the authors apply prominent theories and models to actual situations encountered professionally. Real-world examples and new material keep the book relevant and up to date. Compelling graphs, models, other visuals, and effective pedagogical aids further enhance the material.
The chapters in Part I help readers understand and modify exercise behavior, while those in Part II discuss psychosocial influences and consequences of physical activity. Among the topics explored are the relationship between physical activity and cognitive function and the impact of exercise on self-esteem, stress, anxiety and depression, and emotional well-being. Chapters on social influences, body image, and health-related quality of life offer the latest information on these emerging areas of study.
Features of the third edition include a new chapter on exercise and cognition; new materials on motivational interviewing, cultural tailoring of physical activity interventions, developing physical activity action plans and implementation intentions, and evaluating physical activity interventions using RE-AIM; and updated references, glossary, and graphics.
