Knowing what to look for is an important early step. By learning how sexual, physical, and emotional abuse and misconduct may appear in sport settings, you can see when behaviors may cross the line, and when you can act to safeguard a child.
Power, culture, and social dynamics can impact the likelihood of misconduct on and off the field. You’ll learn about these dynamics and proactive steps you can take, while supporting healthy acts and attitudes that build athletes up rather than tear them down.
Unfortunately, inappropriate behavior may happen. We’ll show you how to react and intervene if it does and introduce you to relevant laws and policies on reporting abuse, so you can do the right thing in any situation.
Courses are based on input from experts in relevant fields, with real-world examples to bring best practices home in easy-to-grasp ways.
