Consent, Rape & Harassment Workshop

A 2020 Dreams Consent Workshop will assist teenagers and young people in defining these terms while challenging the myths which allow sexual abuse, harassment and rape to occur.

The importance of consent in close relationships cannot be underestimated. Understanding what constitutes consent, rape, sexual abuse and harassment is an important factor in helping young people to successfully handle their close relationships with less risk of being harmed or harming others.

Defining Consent, Rape, Sexual Abuse and Harassment

Understanding issues around consent and sexual abuse are not helped by the conflicting definitions with common understandings, legal definitions and myths often at odds with one another.

A 2020 Dreams Consent Workshop will discuss common terms associated with consent such as what constitutes rape and sexual abuse and how harassment includes behaviours such as unwanted kissing, groping, flashing, stalking and sexually explicit comments.

We will also cover how the law defines and deals with rape, sexual assault and harassment and how sexual crimes may be underreported due to stigma and a culture of victim blaming.

The Consent & Contraception workshop went really well

The Consent & Contraception workshop went really well. The facilitator was incredibly engaging, he was able to hold the students’ attention very easily and there was a great balance of humour and seriousness. I’ve had really positive feedback from the students already, they have learned so much but don’t feel overwhelmed with facts and figures and it wasn’t death by PowerPoint. We would be delighted to invite 2020 Dreams back.

I Recommend 2020 Dreams and their SRE workshops

I can highly recommend 2020 dreams and their SRE workshops for all levels of students. I would advise you to contact Daniel Paul who will accommodate your school, your students and any differentiation necessary for your KS4 groups. We have used 2020 Dreams now on 4 occasions in particular to discuss Sex Ed and Consent. These workshops were given by professional, yet friendly, open minded trainers who gained respect from all of our students directly. My students have been taught through drama and dance and through open minded discussions.

Thank you so much for helping us out at such short notice! All three sessions (Contraception, Sex & Making Better Choices and Gang Awareness) were really well run and very valuable to our students. As I was walking around I could see all students were fully engaged and having lots of fun.

The Puberty Sessions Was Great

The content of the Puberty sessions was great, well pitched and pertinent for the age group... but it was all in the delivery - Derek - what a legend, the kids loved him. Such an approachable, sensitive and warm man, perfect for the workshop.

Challenging Myths About Consent

There are many stubborn myths which place young people in danger of being sexually abused or engaging in sexually abusive behaviour. Although many people imagine a rapist to be a stranger lurking in an alleyway, the facts are that around 88 per cent of rapes are perpetrated by those known to the victim. By highlighting this statistic, a 2020 Dreams Consent Workshop will help young people to enjoy themselves socially while remaining vigilant for the signs of trouble.

Participants in a 2020 Dreams Consent Workshop will learn that there is no such thing as a stereotypical abuser or victim and that sexual assault can happen to and be perpetrated by people of any age, gender, social class, sexual orientation, race, cultural background, faith, ability and physical size, shape and appearance.

Other myths that will be challenged in a 2020 Dreams Consent Workshop include the belief that wearing revealing clothes implies consent, that silence and refusal to say ‘no’ is the same as saying ‘yes’ and that permission to engage in some intimate behaviour means agreement to everything.

What Happens in a 2020 Dreams Consent Workshop?

A 2020 Dreams Consent, Rape and Harassment Workshop uses proven techniques for engaging with young people in a safe, supportive environment while challenging them to think seriously about the issues involved.

Sensitively designed role play scenarios provide a context in which young people can start to think about the relationship situations which they may face. It also allows them to consider and discuss the feelings of those involved.

Our experienced, DBS-checked workshop facilitators will also manage open forum discussions to encourage participants to ask questions, relate experiences and develop their own solutions for staying safe and respecting boundaries.

As one of the top PSHE workshop providers in the country, we are able to customise our workshops to fit different age groups, cultural backgrounds and specific curriculum requirements. We will run workshops anywhere in the UK in schools, PRUs, Young Offenders’ Institutes and other institutions responsible for educating and protecting young people.
