Here's an excerpt of a review from Jeffrey L. Brown in Ethics & Behaviors: “An ethics code gives credibility to any profession. Sport and exercise psychology is no different. In fact, (Edward) Etzel and (Jack) Watson have dedicated more than just time to this volume. The have invested their lives and have championed the cause of ethical behavior in sport psychology for a lengthy period. Readers are fortunate to gain insight and knowledge from these two pioneers of ethics in sport and exercise psychology, as well as their cadre of colleagues who specialize in various corners of the discipline.

In a world of capitalism and competition, as well as an increase interest in sport, performance, and exercise psychology, Etzel and Watson provide the ethical beacon by which any professional in these areas of specialty should be guided." Read more and purchase access to the review here.

From the Foreword

"In Ethical Issues in Sport, Exercise, and Performance Psychology, Edward F. Etzel and Jack C. Watson II have collected a fascinating set of ethical analyses and guidelines accompanied by rich examples to illustrate the challenges of practicing ethically in sport psychology. The outstanding contributors present fleshed-out ethical challenges and dilemmas in exquisite detail across a range of populations, settings, and modes of service delivery. They have truly done a service to sport psychologists, students, and coaches, and their work will open wide the eyes of many who had never fully considered these issues."
