The Case for Sport as a Medium to Foster Healing from Psychological Trauma

Read about how trauma can disrupt a person's development and the unique role that sport can play in healing in a resource booklet developed by Edgework Consulting.

For over 20 years, Edgework has worked around the world with a wide range of innovative youth development organisations. 

In the past decade, we have focused our work on using sport and physical activity to counter the effects of trauma. We’ve witnessed, first hand, sport's power to heal. 

We’ve created a resource booklet for those who: 

  • Are interested in understanding how trauma affects us, both psychologically and physiologically
  • Believes in the power of sport to heal, and wants an accessible and meaningful way to explain it to stakeholders and beneficiaries
  • Is already operating, or aspires to create, a trauma-sensitive sport programme or league

Help us spread the word about the unique and powerful role that sport can play in helping people heal.
