"With contributions from around the globe, rarely has sport, exercise and performance psychology been covered so comprehensively in a single text. This book truly contains something for everyone, from neophyte to seasoned practitioner." --Peter Terry, Professor of Psychology, University of Southern Queensland/ President, Asian-South Pacific Association of Sport Psychology.
"In this exciting tome, Cremades and Tashman have set out on and accomplished an enormous task: to address training and applied practice issues regarding sport, exercise, and performance psychology from a truly international perspective. Traditional methods of training and practice are explicated, alongside the mundane but rarely discussed business of practice, as well as such cutting-edge considerations as the impact of technological advancement. The research-based voices of early career professionals and seasoned practitioners will inform an equally wide readership as we move toward the globalization of the profession." --Kate F. Hays, Ph.D., C.Psych., CC-AASP, Toronto, Canada, Psychologist practitioner, author, and independent scholar
"The book has a fresh approach including authors who are novices in the field as well as well-established practitioners. The content is truly international with authors from 20 countries and five continents. Topics include not only the traditional sport and physical activity, but also military, circus, cultural competence, technology, business, ethics, and supervision. To me, the most exciting part of the book is that approximately one third of the chapters focus on supervision, a typically under-represented area in the field." Stephanie Hanrahan, Assoc. Professor, Sport and Exercise Psychology, The University of Queensland
