The editors invited nearly 50 of the world's leading experts on the key aspects of sport and exercise psychology to examine and explain the latest findings and newest directions of research.

Section I features the major psychological processes that have been the subject of extensive theoretical consideration and research examination in the context of sport. Section II highlights topics that have been addressed systematically in relation to the application of sport psychology. Section III focuses on the rapidly growing area of exercise psychology. Section IV details a number of specific themes and particular populations that are of special interest in sport psychology. The contributors represent four different continents and their insights and experiences reflect sport's continuing globalisation. Sport and exercise psychology continues to grow in many countries and regions of the world, and the diversity of the contributors to this book enables readers to make comparisons between the way psychological processes function in different cultures.

Many traditional psychology texts devote significant coverage to psychological theory. In Frameworks for Sport Psychologists,author Karen L. Hill highlights five popular theoretical models and demonstrates how they can be applied in helping athletes to improve their performance. Demonstrating how theoretical models work, Hill introduces the hypothetical case of a struggling professional golfer, Lisa "The Cheetah" Irons. Through this case study, readers learn how each theory assists the sport psychologist in interpreting Lisa's thoughts, emotions, and actions and how to create a plan of action for performance enhancement. The text follows a progression of -learning about each of the five theories, -learning how each theory is applied to a single case, -applying the same theory to other cases, and -writing an original case. In addition to the ongoing case study of Lisa "The Cheetah" Irons, each chapter includes an additional case, providing the reader further opportunity to apply the theories to real process plan. Frameworks for Sport Psychologistsoffers the reader a practical look at sport psychology through its unique blend of theory and practice.

Rethinking Thin

The New Science of Weight Loss--and the Myths and Realities of Dieting

In this eye-opening book, New York Times science writer Gina Kolata shows that our society's obsession with dieting and weight loss is less about keeping trim and staying healthy than about money, power, trends, and impossible ideals. Rethinking Thin is at once an account of the place of diets in American society and a provocative critique of the weight-loss industry. Kolata's account of four determined dieters' progress through a study comparing the Atkins diet to a conventional low-calorie one becomes a broad tale of science and society, of social mores and social sanctions, and of politics and power. Rethinking Thin asks whether words like willpower are really applicable when it comes to eating and body weight. It dramatizes what it feels like to spend a lifetime struggling with one's weight and fantasizing about finally, at long last, getting thin. It tells the little-known story of the science of obesity and the history of diets and dieting—scientific and social phenomena that made some people rich and thin and left others fat and miserable. And it offers commonsense answers to questions about weight, eating habits, and obesity—giving us a better understanding of the weight that is right for our bodies.
