Everyone’s Nightmare: The Dark Side of Sports
News reports uncovering more than 10 alleged sexual abuse or assault cases per month involving athletes or coaches highlight the fact that the story of sexual aggression in sports is far from over.  These alarming incidents raise questions about underlying causes and other types of sexually deviant and aggressive behaviors that silently thrive within insulated athletic teams beginning in high school.
 While this information is certain to shock, raise awareness, and provide a wake-up call for those in and outside of the sports world, Dr. Pappas also discusses a course of action for preventing these harmful behaviors while promoting personal and team excellence in
the process.
