 Cents and Sensibilities

Show Summary Details


Abstract The focus on prevention is heralded as an area of investigative inquiry and further study of the applications of prevention science and practice across populations, the developmental spectrum, mental health challenges, and social justice domains is encouraged. The observations and comments herein relative to the application of a prevention mindset to sport and exercise will be articulated with a goal of illuminating current views and emerging perspectives. This chapter also doubles as an invitation to counseling psychologists to continue to promote sport and exercise as health and wellness lifestyle activities in which national and international communities can easily, readily, and straightforwardly engage and from which tremendous benefits are virtually guaranteed.
