Attitudes, Beliefs, and Models in Adherence to Exercise and Sport.
Gabert, Trent E.
The general purpose of the symposium was to connect several factors which have been studied in the psychological domain to the exercise and sport behavior domain. The assumption that factors related to adherence are facilitated through the psychological connection have been widely discussed in literature. Models allow for the development of an abstract outline specifying relations between variables and their relationship to the phenomena of interest. For example, adherence models frequently include the components of attitude and belief and take into consideration an individual's cognition or mind-set of an attribute or situation. It is noted that adherence is a complex, multidimensional factor in exercise and sport and is strongly influenced by psychology. Figures of five models are included as well as 27 references. (JD)
