Discussions & insight! NDAS deliver training on abuse in teen relationships.

August 25, 2017

Last week NDAS delivered the second part of the Domestic Abuse Awareness training with NE Youth, and youth and support workers from across the North East. 


This session focused on abuse in teenage relationships - relationship dynamics, emotional abuse, coercive control- , and considered the emotional impact of domestic abuse on children and young people. It was an opportunity for youth and support workers to bring together experiences and ideas on how to recognise abuse and abusive behaviours, and also how to develop prevention methods and early help strategies to keep young people safe. The discussions were very interesting, with many participant bringing own experiences and insights to the table, and sharing the work they are already doing to protect young people, and to increase self-esteem, confidence and self-worth.


With a mixture of presentation, interactive discussion, video and group tasks, the participants covered a broad range of information over the evening. The group were encouraged to look critically and real life examples of teenage abuse, to be able to identify patterns of behaviour that can often lead to an imbalance of power and emotional or physical abuse. 


Feedback from those taking part was really positive, with everyone feeling that they had the chance to ask questions and find out more about how to apply the information to their own professional, and personal, lives:



"Really good to have the opportunity for discussion, and to work together in groups"


"Hearing other people's experiences and insights was very helpful"


"Good to see other opinions and solutions"


"Relaxed... no wrong answers"    


"Fantastic as a parent, not just a youth worker"


"Facilitated well, especially in group discussions... each topic talked through, not just put up on the screen"


"Video was a good tool"    


"Loved the case studies"
