Examining and Mitigating Sexual Misconduct in Sport (Hardcover)
Sexual Misconduct in any environment is a gross abuse of trust and this is no different within the sport world. Examining and Mitigating Sexual Misconduct in Sport outlines systemic and sociological explanations for why sport is a site of sexual misconduct. The authors in the text describe cultural realities and considerations sport stakeholders must acknowledge and be informed of to make sport a more equitable and safe space. Personal narratives from a variety of sport stakeholders, which unveil their lived experiences of sexual misconduct and humanize survivor stories in ways often ignored in sport and society, are shared. Authors offer recommendations to all sport stakeholders to mitigate incidents of and harm done by sexual misconduct.
Guidelines and suggestions for sport stakeholder practices that better protect individuals in sport, address sexual misconduct when it occurs, and mitigate the harm and trauma experienced because of incidents of sexual misconduct are also examined and provided. This book is the first text of its kind to invite sport stakeholders to have open, vulnerable, and honest discussions around a timely topic often minimized, denied and/or ignored in sport.
A ground-breaking new book, Examining and Mitigating Sexual Misconduct in Sport is key reading for any sport coach, sport parent, sport psychology professional, or sport administrator.
