Young people and extreme ideals

Wednesday, 10 May, 2017 - 09:30 to 13:30
St Werburghs Community Centre, Horley Road, Bristol, BS2 9TJ
Organised/hosted by: 

This interactive training course explains the radicalisation processes from an educational perspective. It supports professionals working with young people to equip them to better understand and answer questions and the social needs of young people who are engaging with extreme ideals. In the training we focus on the following questions:

- How does the development of extreme ideals (political or religious) relate to a young person’s identity? 
- How do you clarify and explain possible signals?
- How do you maintain an open dialogue with someone who upholds political or religious ideas and possibly even agency that clash with your personal values and those of mainstream society’s? How do you keep talking?

As part of the course an actor will be present to play out real life situations. The training and cases are based on research including Formers and Families. There will also be space to explore personal cases, exchange experiences and discuss strategies.

This training content is based on a training developed by the Expertise Unit Social Stability of the Dutch Ministry of Social Affairs.

This is the first part of this training, the second part is: Supporting staff to comply with the Prevent Duty 2015. We recommend attending both to get the most out of these courses.
