This course focuses upon the theoretical and applied concepts of psychology as it relates to exercise, rehabilitation and sport. Acute and chronic psychological consequences that occur as a result of involvement in physically based activities will be examined as they apply to recreational exercisers and sport enthusiasts, as well as individuals with health problems. Emphasis will be placed on developing an understanding of the theoretical background for specific topic areas and investigating the support for these theories by examining original research on the effects of exercise and rehabilitation on adherence, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, sport injury and sport performance.
