West Mercia Women’s Aid is offering schools the opportunity can you see me image 2 copyfor their year 9 pupils to receive healthy relationship education using an educational resource called Can You See Me? (CYSM).

CYSM is aimed at 14 to 16 year olds in schools and other educational settings to explore the issues of domestic abuse in teenage relationships.

The session consists of a 20 minute video and associated activities and discussions to encourage young people to question and challenge their views of what does and does not constitute a healthy relationship. It also provides information about how young people can access support and help their friends, along with guidance for teachers on how to respond to disclosures.

Each session of CYSM lasts for approximately an hour and can be delivered to a class of up to 30 students.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • The students will understand healthy relationships and their rights & responsibilities in a relationship
  • Students will be able to understand warning signs of an abusive relationship
  • Students will know how to get help if they feel their own relationship is abusive

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

  • All young people who have watched the DVD and received the lesson will understand what a healthy relationship is and how to get help if they feel their own relationship is abusive
  • Most young people will be able to identify abusive behaviours, understand in more detail the difference between controlling behaviours and healthy relationships
  • Recognise how to support their friends
  • Some young people will understand the aspect of the disappearing theme running through the film, and how some people can become lost within an abusive relationship
