Positive Relationships: Is this abuse?
This workshop unpicks pupils perceptions of domestic abuse within teen relationships by discussing physical, emotional, and sexual abuse and coercive control.
In small groups pupils are given conversation cards which prompt them to consider how emotions can drive behaviour, and the impact that the things we say and do can have on our relationships.
Self esteem plays an important role in relationships and this is a key focus point within this workshop.
Students are given tools to enable them to recognise and challenge abusive behaviour in relationships and how to safely get themselves out of potentially harmful situations.
