Social Work Meets Sports

This training will discuss how athletes, as a group, are generally a more vulnerable and susceptible population who are more prone to mental health issues whether by injury or environmental factors and have more prevalent social work-related needs. Also, how athletes traditionally have not received proper social work or mental health treatment because they are deemed to be “young and healthy” individuals that are “free of mental health challenges and social problems.” These vulnerabilities exist at the various levels of sports and further explore the vulnerabilities of athletes.
