A Workbook for Young People
In recent years the number of young people experiencing teenage relationship abuse has increased. Escape the Trap has been specifically designed to support you to learn about teenage relationship abuse and how it can effect you. Being a teenager can be a difficult and confusing time for anyone, but when you find yourself in a relationship in which you are treated badly and which ‘hurts’, it can leave you with extra layers of confusion, self-doubt, a lack of confidence and lowered self-esteem (one’s estimation of oneself).
Over eight weeks the programme will ask you to consider and explore:
Each week of the programme runs in a similar way, with a mixture of discussion, creative or written exercises and activities.
Whether you have experienced abusive behaviour in your past or current relationship, you need to be clear on one thing. It is not your fault and you must not blame yourself. You are not responsible for the actions or behaviour of your past or current partner.
Sometimes we mis-read certain behaviours. We learn to excuse them as expressions of affection or acts of love. You are not alone.
Many people, in their teen and adult lives find themselves in abusive relationships. However, by the end of the programme, it is hoped that you will have improved awareness and understanding about teenage relationship abuse.
This knowledge and learning will provide you with the opportunity to identify abusive behaviour early on in a new relationship and support you to make safer, more informed choices.
The course was well delivered, informative and will be very useful to use 1:1 and groups
