Dr. Mitch Abrams on Joe Mixon

I recently had the opportunity to speak at length with Dr. Mitch Abrams, regarding the problems of domestic violence and sexual assault in sports…..Dr. Abrams has consulted with thousands of athletes over the past 22 years and has developed programs for athletic organizations at all levels – youth through professional. He is the Founder and President of Learned Excellence for Athletes – his sport psychology consulting company is located in New Jersey. As a forensic psychologist, he is also an expert in risk assessment, an area which is highly under-utilized, but necessary, if we are to stem acts of aggression in athletics, and even as a society……Dr. Abrams offered many insights in this regard that space didn’t permit in the original series, so in light of yet another violent case in the news, the Joe Mixon, assault, I spoke with him again and wanted to share his thoughts in this regard along with excerpts of the original interview in order that we might have a better understanding of factors that contribute to the problem and what can be done.
