Ariel is currently working in partnership with Dartington Social Design Lab to co-create new resources with young people in Refrewshire. These resources will focus on the issue of controlling and coercive behaviour in teenage relationships.
We are currently consulting young people in schools across Renfrewshire to develop real life scenarios as content for the resources and to develop activities designed to build resistance and refusal skills amongst their peers. The first week of consultation has produced a number of exciting ideas to focus on these issues, particularly in the context of recent changes, which recognise coercive as abuse in law.
The resources will be further developed over the summer with a view to developing a education resource that can be used by young people across the region.
