Oglesby, Carole A.; And Others
The psychological and social aspects of achievement in physical activities are examined. The first chapter discusses health and the sources and development of self esteem. In the second chapter, ways in which a positive attitude toward one's body image may be developed are explored. The third chapter is concerned with achievement, motivation, fear of failure or success, and competitiveness. In chapter four, meeting affiliation needs through physical activity is discussed along with the seeking of recognition and approval and the controlling of aggression. The aesthetics of motion are considered in the fifth chapter. Chapter six offers advice on avoiding negative addiction to exercise, self control, and rejecting arbitrary limitations. (JD)
