Central London

This very practical day will equip participants with a clear understanding of the key issues of abuse and violence in relationships and practically examine how drama techniques can be used to engage young people in these issues. These exercises have been tried and tested in a range of youth settings including schools, youth centres and pupil referral units and the training will be delivered by facilitators with a wealth of experience in delivering issue based projects. This training will:

• Give participants a theoretical understanding of issues such as different types of abuse, the excuses perpetrators give and the pressures on victims to stay in abusive relationships through our gendered model.
• Practically explore exercises that can be used to engage young people.
• Explore how the activities can be applied in a variety of youth settings, and learn effective techniques for engaging and encouraging young people to participate.
• Trouble shoot particular barriers participants have encountered when carrying out this kind of violence prevention work.

The day is aimed at professionals working directly with young people. Participants do not need to have previous experience of drama or theatre to take part in the day.
