U.S CENTER FOR SAFESPORT
TAKE OUR SAFESPORT COURSES TO BE BETTER EQUIPPED TO:
PREVENT We help you proactively take steps to prevent abuse, showing how power imbalances and culture dynamics affect the prevalence of abuse, and highlighting ways to build inclusion and team cohesion. RECOGNIZE We introduce and illustrate signs and forms of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse and misconduct, how they may appear in your environment, and how to recognize warning signs.
RESPOND We’ll show you how to properly react and follow through on disclosures of abuse, how to intervene in situations where abuse may be evident, and laws that guide abuse reporting.
