Context

Young people are often ‘demonised’ and ‘criminalised’ based on a history of flawed youth justice policies, inadequate practice, combined with the changing nature of social and cultural impacts on the lives of young people such a social media. This module suggests that there needs to be more informed understanding of young people and violence, rooted within a wider critical analysis of contemporary understandings of both ‘youth crime and justice’

Aim

This workshop will be a formal presentation, with interactive discussion in a safe space where we can share knowledge and feedback. 

Outcome

By the end of the session participants will have tools to take away and use in your own professional and personal environment.  Giving you a better understanding of the issues affecting our young people and practical advice on how you can tackle them. To think more critically, self-reflect and to share your learning with others
