erin wilsonErin Willson is an Olympian and a PhD candidate at the University of Toronto, studying abuse in sport. Her interest in this subject came from her own experience as an athlete, particularly when she was on the Canadian National Synchronized Swimming Team. Her research includes exploring the magnitude and antecedents for abuse in sport, emotional abuse and body shaming. She is also very passionate about athlete advocacy, which has led to her being on the board of directors for AthletesCAN, the association for National Team athletes, which she currently holds the presidency position. 

This session will cover an overview of the state of abuse in Canadian sport. This will include understanding the current problem, including all types of harm (physical, sexual, psychological harm, and neglect) and underlying risk factors that have led to the current crisis for athletes. Identified mental health outcomes of abuse will also be discussed. The session will conclude with a perspective on what protections are needed, what is currently in place, and how to move all sport stakeholders forward to ensure that athletes are happy and healthy while participating in sport.
