Sexual Abuse in Youth Sport : A Sociocultural Analysis (Hardcover) (Michael J. Hartill)
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.
