Sticks And Stones Can Break My Bones And Words Can Really Hurt Me: Abusive Coaching In Sport And Performing ArtsArtists' Health Alliance, Toronto | ON

"This event is part of our Research for Practice (R4P) Talk Series.
Hosted by Ryerson University School of Performance.

“No pain, no gain” attitudes can cause athletes, performers, parents and coaches alike to justify abusive coaching when it occurs. Although many harmful coaching behaviours such as demeaning comments, belittlement, and physical conditioning as punishment may have been common practice in the past, they are no longer acceptable in sport and performing arts.

In this presentation, Dr. Ashley Stirling explores the concept of athlete maltreatment as a way to open a conversation about abusive coaching in arts settings. Delve into current research on abuse within coach-athlete relations in order to understand why it occurs and how it can be prevented. Learn how you might intervene in cases of maltreatment as a coach, parent, performer or bystander, and how to create positive and healthy experiences for performing artists.
