Book Description

This ebook; Rethinking Sport and Exercise Psychology Research: Past; Present; and Future (PDF) provides a comprehensive historical account of the evolution of Sport and Exercise Psychology research; charting the progression of the field from the early days when well-controlled experimental research was the standard; to the subsequent paradigm war between post-positivism; positivism; and constructivism. The ebook challenges current thinking and makes a plea for a move towards a future in which the accumulation of knowledge is at the core of Sport and Exercise research; rather than simply methods and measurements. The result is a critique not only of exercise and sports psychology but of psychological research methods more broadly. It will be of great interest to students an researchers working in Research Methods; Sports Science; and Psychology.
