Now in its second edition, Applied Exercise Psychology emphasizes the application of evidence-based knowledge drawn from the fields of exercise psychology, health psychology, clinical and counseling psychology, and exercise physiology for physical activity behavior change. Thoroughly revised, the new edition offers readers:

two new chapters covering Excusercise and Mood Alteration’s link to exercise;
fully updated sections on current research and theoretical bases for understanding and promoting physical activity behavior;
interventions for facilitating physical activity behavior change and the tools for measuring the effectiveness of these interventions;
cross-cultural considerations for practitioners to ensure multicultural competency;
considerations to guide best practices with special populations (e.g., persons with medical conditions and persons with mental health conditions);
overall applied implications and future directions.
An essential read that covers a variety of critical topics in applied exercise psychology, it brings often overlooked issues to the attention of practitioners to promote not only evidence-based practice but also responsible ethics and referral. The collection is a key reference for up-to-date research findings, relevant field experiences, and applied implications.
