  Aim:

Participants will develop a deep understanding of the grooming and silencing tactics used by perpetrators, along with how this relates to the law surrounding rape, childhood sexual abuse and consent. The training will also examine young people’s lived experiences of wider forms of sexual violence and harassment, both online and offline, exploring the gendered way in which boys and girls experience different forms of abuse and how this is occurring in a highly sexualised popular culture and media.

Participants will identify key prevention strategies, including practical demonstrations of how to engage with young people in preventing sexual violence.
