Ethics and Sport
coverLife Through the Earholes of Our Youth by Ken Burger (Editor), David Lissy (Photographer).

Beyond the scores: Ken Burger's first book is about real life! In between all the games and stuff, every now and then Ken has written an article about the experiences he had with sports when he was a kid. A great deal of it concerns the struggles we all go through and where sports fits into our lives as young people...  

From the Author:  The focus for this book emerged as I pored over a decade's worth of sports columns-more than 200 a year-and discovered that the ones I liked most reflected personal thoughts and feelings. A lot of it has to do with my youth and my kids- the personal stuff I've written about over the years. It's about real life. Some of the columns are about my own kids. Some deal with alcoholism and other things I've personally gone through. I've had people tell me that the only reason they pick up the sports page is to read a column that will draw them into something beyond the scores. I look at writing as a journey through all this stuff.

Sport Psychology

Department of Kinesiology University of Maryland, College Park.

Excerpt:

Sport Psychology focuses on the study of the psychological factors which affect sport and physical activity. Students specializing in sport psychology have the opportunity to take departmental courses covering topics such as aggression, social facilitation, motivation, attitudes, and personality as they relate to the broad interpretation of physical activity. A concentration in psychophysiology is available, focusing on the cognitive state of skilled athletic performance and exercise/mental health issues of the aging brain. In addition, supportive course work is taken in the Departments of Psychology, Sociology, Special Education, Human Development, Education, Computer Science and Statistics. Applicants for the program should have had undergraduate training in sport and physical education, as well as educational experiences in psychology or a related area.
