Information pertaining to the Psycology of Extreme Sports : LUSENET : APA Division 47 Exercise and Sport Psychology : One Thread

Hi, I was wondering if you could help me with finding any links or data articles on the subject of Human Psycology in Extreme Sports. Being an enthusiast myself, I am writing an extended essay on why people take part in Extreme sports, any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

Thank you.

Andrew, Can't direct you to any specific articles but when searching for things you should include the term "risk" in your searches. A lot of stuff has been done on risk taking behaviour that will be applicable to extreme sports.

Hope that helps.
