BeschreibungThis book offers a useful framework for understanding, investigating, and promoting the stimulation of new empirical research. The reader is initially introduced to a summary of the primary concepts and theories pertaining personal and social responsibility, highlighting the issues of Personal and Social Development in Sport, Life and Moral Skills, Personal Responsibility and Life Skills, Motivational Determinants of Responsibility and Attitudes towards Sport. This is followed by the validation of an evaluation instrument intended to assess the levels of personal and social responsibility in sport, as well as an instrument for assessing the engagement levels among athletes. Then the author culminates with the presentation of a comprehensive model of personal and social responsibility that includes the sharing of cues for implementing personal and social responsibility oriented programs through youth sport. The contents of this book will allow for both teachers and coaches to improve their pedagogical practice, as they are "pushed" to reflect on their method for organizing and interacting with youth.
