This eBook, Bridging Gaps in Applied Sport and Exercise Psychology, brings together a group of internationally renowned authors to present readers with the most updated discussions on fundamental issues of sport and exercise psychology from a global perspective. Editors Dieter Hackfort and Ingo Seidelmeier have assembled a collection of scientists and researchers who aspire to bridge cultural and conceptual gaps in sport and exercise psychology, enhance the foundational knowledge of key issues in the field, and strengthen links between theory and practice.

This collection is the second volume to be published in the International Perspectives on Sport and Exercise Psychology series, which is co-edited by Hackfort and Gershon Tenenbaum, who both previously served as President of the International Society of Sport Psychology.
