Parents & Carers: Knife Crime Awareness workshops
Knife Crime Awareness
Parenting children and young adults is hard, sometimes it can be scary and overwhelming with news stories and social media influencing how safe we feel our children are and the risks they may face in today’s climate.
Join our FREE workshops in person or virtually to learn more about topics such as the influence of social media, the signs and stages of exploitation, and how we can prevent young people being affected by knife crime as parents, carers and as a community.
During the workshop you will develop understanding around the following topics:
- Young people's brain development, behaviour and responses to stress
- The importance of healthy, safe attachment for young people
- The stages, signs and risk factors of exploitation
- Gangs - what they are, how they operate, and why?
- External influences - language, social media, gang-related music
- Building resilience within the family and community
- Further support available for families
The workshops are hosted by The Ben Kinsella Trust
7th March 2024, 5:30pm-7:30pm, free. This course is in-person at our exhibition in Finsbury Library, Islington.
