Summary
Written by leading researchers from six countries, this is the first book to pull together the diverse range of research on self-concept from the medical sciences, psychology, sociology, physical education, and exercise and sport science. The contributors examine how the physical self motivates and determines behavior and contributes to mental health and well-being. The Physical Self will help you trace how the concept of the physical self has evolved over the last decade and how it has contributed to our understanding of the total self
