Summary

With an emphasis on women and transwomen athletes and exercisers of color, Feminist Applied Sport Psychology: From Theory to Practice introduces the reader to feminist, black feminist, and womanist sport psychology, offering an alternative and powerful approach to working with athletes. 

Covering core concepts, applied skills, and research methods, the book includes useful features throughout, such as discussion questions and definitions of key terms. It is organized into three sections covering, firstly, feminist theory, history, movements, and their importance in applied sport psychology; secondly, the intersection of race, class, and gender, and the integration of intersectional considerations into sport psychology; and finally, in-depth case studies of feminist sport psychology in action, each of which offers strategies for best practice.

Feminist Applied Sport Psychology: From Theory to Practice is important reading for feminist-centred students and practitioners in performance and sports domains, and exercise psychology and anybody with an interest in feminist approaches to working with women of diverse backgrounds.
