Description: Can a better understanding of group dynamics raise individual and team athletic performance or improve the outcomes of exercise interventions?Much human behaviour in sport and exercise settings is embedded within groups, where individuals' cognitions, emotions, and behaviours influence and are influenced by other group members. Now in a fully revised, updated and expanded second edition, Group Dynamics in Exercise and Sports Psychology explores the unique psychological dynamics that emerge in sport and exercise groups. It provides a clear and thorough guide to contemporary theory, research and applied practice, covering core themes and cutting-edge topics as well as highlighting directions for future research. The book is organised into five thematic sections:Part 1: The Self in GroupsPart 2: Leadership in GroupsPart 3: Group EnvironmentPart 4: Motivation in GroupsPart 5: Social-Environmental Issues in GroupsThis new edition includes eight completely new chapters, exploring important emerging issues such as peer leadership, the family, social support, cultural group dynamics, decision making and communication within teams, and group-mediated cognitive behavioural approaches. No other book on group dynamics in sport or exercise offers such a close examination of the evidence base, and therefore Group Dynamics in Exercise and Sports Psychology is important reading for all students, researchers or practitioners working in sport or exercise psychology, kinesiology, sport and exercise science, sports coaching or physical education.
