about this item

This book is about the sexual abuse of children and young people in sports contexts. It documents and evaluates this important issue through a critical investigation of the research, policy and practice which has emerged within sport over the past two decades. It also provides a new theoretical framework through which child sexual abuse in sport may be understood and further explored. Drawing on a wide range of sources, including ‘survivor’ accounts, sport agencies records and wider media, this book is important reading for any researcher, policy-maker or practitioner working in youth sport, physical education, sports coaching, sport policy, child protection or social work.
