Bullying and hazing in sport teams

ByLeslee A. Fisher, Lars Dzikus

What are bullying and hazing in sport? Should sport psychology consultants be concerned with these behaviors? If so, what role should sport psychology consultants play in dealing with abusive relationships in sport? These questions are the major issues we explore in this chapter. We understand bullying and hazing as abusive behaviors related to group dynamics that occur within teams and also when team members harass, bully, or haze non-team members.
