Talking About Sexual Abuse 

There remains a critical need for sexual abuse prevention education to be delivered to secondary school age students. Our Talking About Sexual Abuse workshop is designed to assist young people: identify unsafe situations; respond in unsafe situations; report unsafe situations. 

In 2011 The Hon Peter Blaxell commenced a Special Inquiry ‘St Andrew’s Hostel Katanning: How the system and society failed our children’. The Blaxell Inquiry highlighted that historically, the teaching has been poor in the area of sex education and protective behaviours, specifically stating it has been; “... of a very low quality and usually limited to the occasional warnings of the “stranger danger” variety. The standard stereotype of child molesters being old men in raincoats sidling up to the school yard was very misleading for children.”

 

Topics Covered

 

  • Fact not Fiction – Sexual Abuse Facts

  • Grooming Behaviours

  • ‘Real world’ examples - Identify, Respond, Report

  • Personal space and consent

  • Help seeking

  • Support services for young people

 

Workshop Duration: 60 / 90 mins (Suitable for Year 7 - 12 Students)
