Weiss and Kipp publish on youth motivation and participation in physical activity

Lindsay Kipp.jpgWeissM-2007.jpgMaureen Weiss, professor of Kinesiology, and Lindsay Kipp, Kinesiology doctoral candidate, published a chapter in the prestigious Oxford Handbook of Human Motivation, edited by noted theorist Richard Ryan. The authors conducted a comprehensive review of the literature on social influence (parents, peers, coaches/teachers) and developmental outcomes of physical activity motivation and participation. The chapter is part of a large-scale project by Oxford University Press to publish a synthetic library covering topics that span the entire field of psychology. The library will comprise handbooks that summarize and synthesize a topic, define the current scholarship, and set the agenda for future research. The full reference for the publication is: Weiss, M.R., Amorose, A.J., & Kipp, L.E. (2012). Youth motivation and participation in sport and physical activity. In R.M. Ryan (Ed.), The Oxford Handbook of Human Motivation (pp. 520-553). New York: Oxford University Press.
