Product Description

Review

“Sport psychologists have always been aware of cross-cultural issues during interventions, but little has been written about these important issues. This book helps fill this void.”
Dan Smith, PhD
Instructional Dean, Cerritos College

“This would be a fine acquisition for anyone working in the field of sport psychology, especially for those who have interactions with athletes from different countries. Moreover, even those who work exclusively with athletes in the United States will find these concepts useful because of the diversity of our population.”
-- Doody's Book Review
