This workshop had been developed due to the changing nature of relationship education within schools in the 21 century and the incidences of relationship abuse.
During this workshop, students are encouraged to redefine relationships in the context of what they are, how they make us feel, what are the rules and what they are not. They also challenge the social construction of gender by demystifying stereotypes and roles then exploring consent, abuse, domestic violence, sexting, diversity, homophobia, sexually focused Apps all within the concepts of power and control.
Real life examples with a step by step action plan of how to prevent, and safely challenge abuse are presented and a poster (for your school to keep) is made of the student’s answers to what makes a respectful relationship.
Finally a resource list is offered to the students for future use.
