Event description

Description

Free, one-day training courses for those who work in a youth setting, on how to respond when a young person uses religious or other hate speech.

Aim of the session:

Using a highly participative, non-formal educational approach, this training aims to equip those working in a youth setting with appropriate tools for tackling hate speech. Participants will explore different issues relating to cultural and religious diversity. They will learn how to recognise hate speech, and how to manage the situation when it occurs. They will also develop tools to support transformation of the beliefs and attitudes that underpin the behaviour.

Learning Objectives

a) Improve understanding of issues surrounding hate speech, and religious and cultural diversity

b) Recognise forms of hate speech and related challenging behaviour

c) Learn ways to effectively manage the situation when hate speech occurs

d) Explore different approaches to transforming the young person’s outlook


Intended Audience
