Would you like to introduce examples of helpful and harmful reactions to the disclosure of sexual violence into your interventions? This tool is sure to meet your needs!
Using a questionnaire and a role-playing activity, you will be able to put your participants’ reactions to the test. This 14-page tool in the form of an activity sheet is aimed at intervention workers working with young people aged 16 and over.
The activity takes 70 minutes and is divided into 4 sections. The first is an icebreaker activity that focuses on the basics of the matter and describes what disclosure means. Next, you will find two questionnaires that include questions on helpful or harmful reactions. In the third part, a role-playing activity is offered to enable participants to put their learning into practice. At the end, there is a two-minute video to demonstrate examples of reactions when someone discloses an incident to you.
The YWCA expertise
To help prevent violence and reduce social and gender inequalities, the YWCA Montreal has been developing intervention and awareness-raising tools for professionals working with young people for several years. The creation of this exercise sheet was made possible thanks to funding from the Secrétariat à la condition féminine du Québec.
