In this webinar, Professor Susan Backhouse will highlight that doping risk factors emerge from multiple contexts and interact to place individuals and groups at risk. Appreciating the complexity of doping in sport she will call for action to be taken on the dopogenic environment; defined as the sum of influences produced by the surroundings, opportunities and conditions that promote doping. By viewing doping as a complex social behaviour, Susan will close the webinar with a pragmatic appraisal of the role of sport and exercise scientists in tackling the dopogenic environment to prevent doping in sport
The webinar will last for approximately 1 hour, of which 45 minutes will be for the actual presentation, followed by a 15 minutes question and answer session. You can submit a question when you sign up and you may also ask them mid-presentation. The webinar will be recorded and will be made available for playback on the Human Kinetics website.
