Exercise and Sport Psychology Laboratory


Welcome to the Exercise and Sport Psychology Lab


File 670The lab is overseen by Dr. Peter R.E. Crocker. Current lab research combines a variety of interrelated areas within the realms of sport, exercise and health psychology. Using quantitative and qualitative methods, researchers are examining important practical and theoretical questions in the following areas: stress, coping and emotion in sport and physical activity; perfectionism and the stress process; motivation for sport and physical activity participation; self-compassion processes in athletes and older adults, physical activity and well-being outcomes; passion in sport; body image and identity, and self-conscious emotions in sport and exercise.

The lab is made up of doctoral and master’s students with related backgrounds, whose members are actively publishing in a variety of academic journals, and regularly presenting at academic conferences.
