Think Prevent Workshops are designed with faith leaders, and people from no faith community, in mind. They are theory informed and based on best practice approaches in preventing a range of abusive behaviours. Upon completion, leaders are better equipped to recognise abusive behaviour and to have the skills to intervene

Workshop Goals

  • Raise awareness of participants about the level of  relationship and sexual violence in our culture
  • Challenge thinking by countering mainstream messages about gender, sex and violence
  • Open dialogue by creating a safe environment for men and women to share their opinions and experiences about these issues
  • Inspire leadership by empowering participants with concrete options to safely confront and interrupt abusive situations

Think Prevent workshops are facilitated discussions, not lectures. They are highly interactive. Awareness raising is utilised to develop concrete options for participants to employ during a range of work or social situations – ranging from inappropriate comments to physical abuse. Additionally, workshops open dialogue regarding participant leadership around issues such as: the drivers of gender violence as it relates to unhealthy behaviour, sexual objectification of women, sexual harassment, battering and sexual assault

Skills Learned

Our training curriculum is designed to improve upon the skills people in leadership positions already use. Participants learn to recognise agressive behaviour, gain confidence in intervention skills, and build a team network that will better keep people safe. The workshops also engage facilitators in a discussion about the establishment of policies and procedures in their faith organisation
