Research

Dr. Causgrove Dunn’s research interests focus primarily in the area of Adapted Physical Activity (APA), which is concerned largely with promoting physical activity participation and inclusion of individuals of all ages who are living with impairments. Within APA, she has focused primarily on motivational constructs and physical activity participation of children with impairment. More recently, she has begun working in the area of curriculum development and delivery in APA at the undergraduate level.

As a secondary area of interest, Dr. Causgrove Dunn collaborates with a research team to examine perfectionism in sport. This work primarily focuses on measurement of perfectionism and on examining links between different facets of perfectionism and a variety of behavioral, affective, and psychological constructs (e.g., goal orientations, perceived competence, anger, coping, and reactions to mistakes).
