KIN 564 Psycho-Social Aspects of Physical Activity

Research and Teaching

Current lab research combines a variety of interrelated areas within the realms of sport, exercise and health psychology. Using quantitative and qualitative methods, we 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; mental toughness and self-compassion processes in athletes; body image and identity in various populations, and self-conscious emotions in sport and exercise.
