Exercise is often described as a "magic pill" as it has the potential to rid the world of all its health-related problems, yet the world is becoming more sedentary and problems associated with obesity are on the rise. In this module we will explore some of the major theoretical and practical issues in applied exercise psychology to try and understand why people might not exercise as much as they could, how we can help people exercise more, and when exercise might be unhealthy.
Delivered by researchers and practitioners with over 15 years applied experience, we will cover the following topics: the role of mental skills and confidence in exercising regularly; barriers and motivators for exercise; exercise participation and well-being; motivation and motivationally supportive environments; and counselling for exercise behaviour change. In addition, a student-led approach will be adopted with students researching and verbally presenting material on a chosen topic.
Realistic but unimaginative client/group scenario; some knowledge and understanding of chosen theoretical perspective; basic application of chosen theory/theories to practice; little or no attempt to integrate different theoretical perspectives where more than one is used; rudimentary rationale presented for the intervention; lacking a concise and succinct writing style and including superfluous material; no evidence of reading/research beyond that given in the reading pack in preparation for the assignment.
Imaginative and realistic client/group scenario; good knowledge and understanding of chosen theoretical perspective; good application of chosen theory/theories to practice; integration of different theoretical perspectives where more than one is used; presentation of a rationale for the intervention; concise and succinct writing style with no superfluous material; evidence of wide reading/research beyond that given in the reading pack in preparation for the assignment.
Highly imaginative and realistic client/group scenario; excellent knowledge and understanding of chosen theoretical perspective; insightful application of chosen theory/theories to practice; very clear integration of different theoretical perspectives where more than one is used; explicit presentation of a rationale for the intervention; extremely concise and succinct writing style with no superfluous material; evidence of considerable reading/research beyond that given in the reading pack in preparation for the assignment.
Understand the application of self-determination theory to motivation in exercise contexts
Understand how to create an environment that fosters motivation for exercise behaviour change
Identify relevant aspects of mental skills and understand their influence on self-confidence
Understand the role of exercise in the promotion of well-being
Understand the major barriers and motivators for exercise
Demonstrate a familiarity with a chosen area of exercise psychology
Students will complete a presentation in pairs about an aspect of exercise psychology their choosing that is not covered in the course
Students will present a psychological intervention for a hypothetical client/s. They will need to present an overview of the client, explain the clients position from an appropriate theoretical perspective/s and then offer an intervention based on appropriate literature and theory
