* identify sport situations and coaching practice that might constitute either poor practice or possible abuse
* explore your feelings about child abuse and state what constitutes neglect, physical, sexual and emotional abuse
* recognise the signs and symptoms of abuse and appreciate why reporting it is often so difficult
* identify appropriate action if a child discloses he/she has been abused
* identify appropriate action if abuse is suspected and explain the role and responsibilities of other experts (e.g. police, social services)
* describe appropriate practice that reduces the likelihood of abuse occurring
