About this Unit
This unit explores psychological factors that affect sport performance (e.g., self-efficacy and concentration), psychological factors that predict and increase participation in physical activity (e.g., motivation), and psychological outcomes of physical activity (e.g., mental health, resilience, and cognitive development). Students will examine theory and research and draw upon their own experiences, to apply sport and exercise psychology principles to a variety of real-world scenarios, and design strategies relevant to different contexts such as physical education, personal training, exercise physiology, coaching, and health promotion.
