Condolence to Dr. Albert Carron

We are so sorry and shocked to learn of Dr. Albert Carron's death and we want to express our most sincere sympathies to his family during this difficult time.

We appreciate his long- term dedication and enthusiasm brought into the field of sport psychology by his great achievement. His finding in team cohesion and dynamics has brought the field into a new era of research and paved the way for the following investigations.

He will be remembered not only for his research and applied expertise, but also for his willingness and passion to share his life with people he has worked with. It would be difficult to measure the impact he has had on many colleagues', students', and athletes' lives professionally and personally.

We are very sorry to have lost such a remarkable figure and good friend. Please accept our condolences.
With sincere sympathy

The chapters are arranged in nine cohesive sections: sport and exercise participants; the influence of environments on sport and exercise; motor skills; performance enhancement; building and leading teams; career, life skills and character development; health and well-being enhancement; clinical issues in sport psychology; and professional development and practice. Each chapter contains chapter summaries and objectives, learning aids, questions, exercises and references for further reading.

Announcement--sad news

Professor Atsushi Fujita, the former president of International Society of Sport Psychology, Asian and South Pacific Association of Sport Psychology, Japanese Society of Sport Psychology, died on 15th January, 2014 by organ (liver) failure in the hospital, in Tokyo.

Professor Fujita was an important leader of the ISSP. He devoted much time and energy for the ISSP establishment and the dissemination of Sport Psychology world-wide. He was also a wonderful friend of sport psychology colleagues in all over the world. He was kind, humorous, friendly without bias nor discrimination. All sport psychology colleagues and friends regard him as a man of honor and a role model for them both personally and professionally. His passing away is really a huge loss for ISSP and for the International Sport Psychology. All of his friends will always miss him, and we shall continue to carry on his legacy for the generations to come.
