Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The preceding chapters in this book illustrate that coping and emotion in sport is a vibrant area of study, and this is reflected in the diversity of topics covered, theoretical approaches employed, and the geographical spread of the authors. Collectively the chapters provide a full description of ‘what we know’ that informs practice and guides future study in coping and emotion in sport. In this chapter we outline some of the themes for future work in sport on coping and emotion. These are our current thoughts on the area having been involved in editing this book for eighteen months. This is not an exhaustive list of areas for future work, nor a summary of the research suggestions highlighted in each chapter, but rather a reflection of key themes that we feel emerge from the body of work as a whole in this book.
