This course explores the evidence around the long term and multiple impacts on children and young people experiencing violence. The session will look at the experience of different communities as well as boys and girls and will then consider what works in violence prevention through a case study based on the Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities programme.
The aims of the course are:
- Increased knowledge of the children and young people’s experience of violence;
- Better understanding of the long term impact of this violence on children and young people from different communities;
- Better understanding of what works in children and young people experiencing violence.
- To provide resources to consider the implications for different equality groups
We will also signpost participants to a range of national and international resources on violence prevention and children and young people.
