Coaches shift ‘locker room talk' to promote healthy relationships, respect among student athletes

Coaches have unique relationships with their players and Milwaukee is using that to help young men create healthy, respectful relationships as part of a pilot project using the curriculum Coaching Boys Into Men. The training uses ideas of teamwork and sports to apply those principles to actual situations and relationships. An evaluation of the curriculum in Sacramento found participants were less likely to commit abuse and more likely to intervene when they witness problematic behavior by peers.
