BeschreibungThis book brings together a group of prominent, international scholars who have published and conducted research in this area of applied psychology. Sixteen chapters reflect empirical, theoretical and applied perspectives associated with coping and emotion in sport, as well as several important issues and special populations. Each chapter is classified under one of the following three headings: (I) Theoretical perspectives on Coping and Emotion in Sport; (II) Research on Coping and Emotion in Sport; and (III) Issues and Special Populations. The target readership is broad, and includes international academic researchers, scholars, and students (both undergraduate and graduate) in the field of sport psychology. The focus of the book also makes it appropriate for psychologists and other practitioners working (or interested in working) with athletes, coaches and/or sport organisations. Finally, the specific focus of the book may be of interest to mental health professionals and researchers in the behavioural sciences.
