Sports Violence : LUSENET : APA Division 47 Exercise and Sport Psychology : One Thread

I can't find any information about athletes and violence. Please send me some information about where I may find it or the names if books that can aid in my research.

I suggest the NCAA website and doing a separate search using the terms "sports", "aggression", "violence", and "athletes". I did a research paper on the ncaa and title nine but i found alot of this type of info in the process. Another possibility is to look at the effects of steroids since violence is a side effect.

My area of expertise in sports is athletes and violence. I have developed an effective program for athletes to reduce levels of anger that may hinder sports performance and learn skills necessary to avoid conflict out of the sports arena as well. Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss this further.
