Abstract [en]

Sport is one of the practices, which has been pointed out to pose a risk of physical and emotional violence towards child athletes. Child protection has risen rapidly at the Swedish sport policy agenda in recent years as in other European countries. However, despite the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN, 1989) it has been shown that children are not protected enough from being abused in sport. Emotional abuse is less researched, however more prevalent compared to other forms of abuse in children’s sport, for example sexual abuse. The overall aim of this study was to examine questions related to the phenomenon of emotional abuse in children’s sport in Sweden. The specific aim was to study the existence, experiences and effects of emotional abuse among 13-18 years old athletes and their coaches. Data were gathered through semi-structured interviews with 21 participants, 16 children and 5 coaches. The results show that emotional abuse occurs both between athletes, and between coaches and athletes. The most commonly forms of emotional abuse were verbal abuse, non-verbal abuse, neglect and lack of attention. The abuse reported were often were linked to children’s sport performance. The effects of emotional abuse reported by children were; decrease in sport performance, lower self-confidence, experienced feelings of insecurity, inadequacy and sadness. The study draws on perspectives of Mayall (2000, 2015) within the sociology of childhood and contributes to highlight children’s perspectives on the phenomenon.
