Biography

Dr. Hogue engages in research and applied work in the fields of Sport & Exercise Psychology. She is most interested in using sport/physical activity settings as a means to help teach positive life skills to youth & to help optimize the health and well-being of participants of all skill levels. She is particularly interested in promoting female engagement in physical activity and the impact sport and exercise participation have on developing the competencies of female athletes and their well-being. Her research is focused on understanding participant stress and motivation in response to the motivational climate fostered by leaders in physical activity settings. Specifically, she examines how caring, task-involving (mastery-focused) climates vs. ego-involving (winning-focused) climates impact psychophysiological stress responses including inflammation and cortisol fluctuations, along with indicators of well-being and motivation. She has recently begun exploring how psychological skills training might help athletes respond more favorably to performance stress.
