The Routledge International Encyclopedia of Sport and Exercise Psychology integrates the topics of motor control, physical education, exercise, adventure, performance in sports and the performing arts, in several important ways and contexts, drawing upon diverse cultural perspectives. More than ninety overarching topics have been systematically developed by internationally renowned experts in theory, research, and practice.

Each contribution delves into a thematic area with more nuanced vocabulary. The terminology drawn upon integrates traditional discourse and emerging topic matter into a state of the art two-volume set. Volume 1: Theoretical and Methodological Concepts is comprised of theoretical topic matter, spanning theories and terminology from psychology contextualized to sport and physical activity, sport psychology focused theories, and expansive discussions related to philosophy of science and methodology. Volume 2: Applied and Practical Measures draws upon practical concepts that bridge theory and research with practice. Broader issues that extend beyond sport and physical activity participants are embedded within the entries, intended to augment physical, mental, and social wellbeing.

This expansive encyclopedia is a must-have resource for all professionals, scholars, and students in the fields of sport psychology and sport science.


"This is the most comprehensive, up-to-date compendium in the psychology of sport and exercise. Covering an array of topics from emotional experience to motor control, this volume is more than a just a reference, it’s a source of inspiration to researchers and practitioners." - Richard M. Ryan, Institute for Positive Psychology and Education, Australian Catholic University, North Sydney, Australia.

"The Routledge International Encyclopedia of Sport and Exercise Psychology is a much-needed encyclopedia in the field of sport and exercise psychology. Most importantly, it has the hallmark of global authorities in this field. Their scholarly description of over 90 key-topics will provide enormous assistance to lecturers and newcomers in the fields of psychology and sport sciences all over the world. Another monumental contribution to the field of sport and exercise psychology by Dieter Hackfort, Robert Schinke and the International Society of Sport Psychology." - Athanasios Papaioannou, University of Thessaly, Greece.
