Sport psychology is the study of a person's behavior in sport.

This book presents current research in the study of sport psychology including such topics as the social and environmental influences on athletic motivation; superstitious beliefs on athlete's cognitive and affective responses; socio-psychological risk among at-risk student athletes; and mental toughness in sports.
