Texas ACSM Fall 2011
Scott McLean, Ph.D.
TACSM President
The ACSM Annual Meeting in Denver was
exciting, educational and informative.! I hope you
had the opportunity to attend and that you are
planning on attending next year’s meeting in San
Francisco!! As we put this crazy summer behind
us, it’s time to turn our attention to fall activities
and the TACSM Annual Meeting.! We have a
busy few months coming up including the Fall
Lecture Tour and a new lecture series at the
TAHPERD Annual Convention.
As a fellow Sun Devil, it is my pleasure to
welcome Dr. Wendy Kohrt from CU Medical
Campus in Denver to Texas for the TACSM Fall
Lecture Tour (11/8-11/11).! Be sure to check the
website for the location nearest you and plan on
attending if you’re available.
Texas ACSM will also team with the College
Division of TAHPERD to host a lecture series at
the TAHPERD Annual Convention on Friday,
December 2, 2011 in Dallas.! This year’s
speakers are Dr. Jacob Barkley from Kent State,
and Dr. Stacey Gaines from Texas A&M-
Kingsville.! See pages 6-7 of this newsletter for
more information.
On a different note, I encourage our member
institutions to consider becoming departmental
members of the American Kinesiology
Association. The AKA’s mission indicates that the
association advocates “for kinesiology at
national and international levels as well as by
supporting its member departments by providing
resource materials and leadership and
educational opportunities for university
administrators in kinesiology.” I honestly feel that
this organization will help further the
development of our field, but only if we
Lastly, the 2012 TACSM Annual Meeting will be
held in Austin, March 1-2 at the University of
Texas JJ Pickle Research Center. Yes - it is the
same place as last year. I hope you plan on
attending particularly since now you know how to
get there, where to park, and where your hotel is.
While the final meeting agenda is still being
confirmed, the meeting will follow a similar
pattern as last year with the Student Bowl and
Student Posters on Thursday afternoon and
evening. The meeting will include a combination
of keynote lectures and concurrent sessions on
Friday. I am excited to announce that Dr. Irene
Davis has agreed to give the Raven Lecture. Dr.
Davis recently moved to a new position at
Harvard Medical School where she will be
launching the Spaulding National Running
Center. With training as a physical therapist and
a biomechanist who considers clinical and
applied aspects of human gait. I think she is the
ideal person to promote the interdisciplinary
nature of our field.
I hope everyone is having a productive and
cooler fall season - I’ll see you in Austin!

A panel of 3 judges will meet with each poster presenter for approximately five minutes. The judges
will ask each presenter to briefly highlight the background, purpose, key pieces of data, and
significance of their findings. The quality of the student’s informal, verbal presentation of their
research will be the primary basis for the judges ranking of the work. Specifically, the judges will be
attempting to determine:
1) Does the presenter have a solid grasp of the general topic area of their work?
2) Does it appear that the presenter made a major contribution to the work?
3) Is the presenter able to clearly articulate the significance of their findings?
4) Are the findings unique and do they contribute to a body of knowledge?
5) Is the poster presentation itself clear and of good quality?
Note: This information is provided to give you a better idea of what to expect during the judging
process. Judging is not meant to be a highly critical process and should be viewed as an
opportunity for the students to present their work to an interested and non-threatening group. The
expectations related to the above criteria will be different for the undergraduate, Master's, PhD, and
PIT researchers.

Jacob Barkley, Ph.D. (Kent State University)):
Can Ostracism Hurt a Child’s Waistline?
Stacey A. Gaines, Ph.D. (Texas A&M University-Kingsville):
Building Character in Sport: Moral Development and the Social Environment
Can Ostracism Hurt a Child’s Waistline?
Jacob Barkley, Ph.D.-Kent State University
Peer victimization and ostracism (exclusion) has numerous, well-established, negative psychological
effects on youth. Only recently has evidence emerged suggesting that negative interaction with one’s
peers or exclusion from the peer group may also promote obeseogenic behavior in youth. This is of
great concern as obese youth, relative to their non-obese peers, are more frequently the targets of
peer victimization and ostracism. Being obese appears to increase the frequency and severity of
episodes of peer victimization which may in turn reinforce obeseogenic behaviors such as
participating in solitary, sedentary behaviors and seeking comfort in high-calorie foods. This could
then perpetuate greater obesity in a child which, in-turn, could increase the severity of the
victimization, thus creating a vicious cycle. This talk will highlight the non-experimental and emerging
experimental studies that have identified potential benefits of positive peer interaction (e.g. spending
time with friends) as well as the consequences of negative peer interaction (e.g. peer victimization
and ostracism) on physical activity and eating behavior in youth. An emphasis will be placed on
describing the effects of ostracism on eating and physical activity behavior. Finally, a discussion of
the practical implications of these findings will be presented.
About Dr. Barkley: Dr. Barkley received his B.S. degree in Physical Education with a
concentration in Exercise Physiology from the State University of New York (SUNY) College
at Brockport in 1998. He then enrolled at SUNY University at Buffalo where he earned both
his M.S. (2002) and Ph.D. (2007) in Exercise Science. During his graduate studies Dr. Barkley
was mentored by Dr. James Roemmich whose research focus is in the area of Behavioral
Medicine. Since 2006 Dr. Barkley has been an Assistant Professor of Exercise Science at
Kent State University where he continues his primary line of inquiry focusing on physical
activity behavior. Dr. Barkley has conducted and is presently conducting multiple studies
examining how social interaction, the variety of equipment and “exergames” (e.g., Nintendo
Wii) affect physical activity behavior in children, adolescents and adults. This research is
aimed at better understanding some of the factors that influence physical activity behavior in the hopes that
more effective physical activity interventions and recommendations can be developed. Dr. Barkley has
published his findings in a wide range of peer-reviewed journals and presented at numerous regional, national
and international conferences. Dr. Barkley is also a committed member of the American College of Sports
Medicine (ACSM). He holds an ACSM Health Fitness Specialist certification, has presented at each of the last
eight ACSM Annual Meetings and was instrumental in assisting the Exercise Science program at Kent State
University in obtaining ACSM accreditation.
Building Character in Sport: Moral Development and the Social Environment
Stacey A. Gaines, Ph.D.-Texas A&M University-Kingsville
The idea that participation in sport builds character is a long-standing one. Advocates of sport
participation believe that sport provides an appropriate context for the learning of social skills such
as cooperation and the development of prosocial behavior. Sport is assumed to provide a vehicle for
learning to cooperate with teammates, negotiate and give solutions to moral conflicts, develop self-
control, display courage, and learn virtues such as teamwork, fairness, and self-control. Parents
often enroll their children in sport hoping that their children will learn these character-related values
and behaviors. Alternatively, many argue that rather than develop character, sport undermines
character. Recent history in sport is replete with news reporting athletes involved in cheating or
aggressive behaviors from the professional ranks down through youth experiences. While the
existence of cheating and aggressive behaviors in sport in long standing, the process of how an
individual comes to a decision concerning what is acceptable or unacceptable in a given situation,
known as moral reasoning, has more recently received empirical attention. This lecture will briefly
review recent research examining the link between peers in the sport domain and character-related
decision making and behavior in sport. Findings will be discussed that suggest peers to be a
powerful social agent within the sport domain with regard to moral decision making. Finally,
implications for research and practice in an effort to utilize peers as positive influences of character in
the sport domain will be presented.
