Sexual Bullying & Inappropriate Behaviour Workshop

A 2020 Dreams Sexual Bullying and Inappropriate Behaviour workshop can help your school or youth institution tackle the sexual bullying issue before it really takes root, providing the sexual bullying facts and empowering young people to take the steps needed to protect themselves from becoming a victim – or a perpetrator.

Where sexual bullying is already occurring, we can help to stamp it out and to direct its victims to the appropriate source of support.

Bullying of any kind is terrible for those on the wrong end, but when it is accompanied by unwanted sexual behaviour or verbal abuse it can be particularly traumatic. Sadly, sexual bullying is happening right now in ordinary schools throughout the UK, often leaving those affected, girls and boys, feeling they have no-one to talk to and no way out of their situation.

In some cases students have moved schools to escape the bullies while others have contemplated suicide. This can’t be allowed to go on.

Key Stats*

  • 45% of teenage girls have been groped against their will (Family Lives).
  • 38% of young people have received unwanted sexual images (Family Lives).
  • Nearly one in four 16-18 year olds say that none of their teachers have ever said that sexual touching, name-calling or picture sharing are unacceptable (EVAW).

* From Family Lives: Herts and EVAW (End Violence Against Women): London, 2010.

Behind the Sexual Bullying Facts

The sexual bullying facts above are bad enough, but the stories behind the statistics are often truly harrowing. They include incidents of explicit private images being circulated among peers in the aftermath of a teen relationship breakdown; teens coercing others into sexual acts using inappropriate text messages (sexting) and prolonged hate campaigns where homophobic bullying is combined with sexual bullying.

Thank you so much for helping us out at such short notice!

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. Staff commented on how engaged students were during the workshops and we would most certainly love to have your team back again!

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.

Through 2020 Dreams’ sensitively designed drama-based role-plays, teenagers will get to put themselves in the position of a victim or perpetrator of sexual bullying or inappropriate behaviour and rehearse strategies that will either stop the unwanted behaviour in its tracks or empower the target to seek appropriate help.

This format of learning often does more on its own than any number of shocking sexual bullying facts and can even help current or would-be perpetrators to stop and think about what effect their actions have on others.

2020 Dreams Sexual Bullying and Inappropriate Behaviour workshops supplement the sexual bullying facts and role-plays with facilitated open-forum discussions. These lively debates allow young people to open up about their opinions, feelings and experiences around sexual bullying.

Almost all will at least know someone who has been victimised. These forums provide a positive and supportive space from which students are able to make suggestions for effective solutions to the sexual bullying problem.

Sexual Bullying and the National Curriculum

It is important that schools present a full picture when they teach PSHE and Sex and Relationship lessons in line with National Curriculum guidelines. Ignoring sexual bullying leaves young people vulnerable to victimisation, while presenting the sexual bullying facts in isolation will not equip students with the skills they need to prevent it happening to them.
