Examining the Role of Personal Ethics in Athlete and Stakeholder Perceptions of Anti-Doping

Resource description

Project/Report Title: Examining the Role of Personal Ethics in Athlete and Stakeholder Perceptions of Anti-Doping

Researcher(s)/author(s): Dr. John Mills

Institution(s): University of Essex

Language: English

Year of funding/approval: 2019

The current project has three main objectives:

  1. To explore the moral development of athletes and stakeholders, a sample of sport (e.g., team, individual) and exercise (e.g., bodybuilding, aerobics) participants (preferably athlete-parent/coach dyads) will be recruited for Moral Judgement Interviews to establish how individuals vary in their ethical frameworks.
  2. These data will then be utilised to design and validate a novel measure of personal ethics, which not only assesses the strength of said ethics, but also provides a rank ordering of ethical priorities.
  3. To develop a new value based anti-doping training programme that uses the new measure to identify the dominant personal ethic and attempts to use this information to reduce doping intentions.
