10 Signs workshops for young people

LMK’s  workshops teach young people to spot and stop unhealthy relationship behaviours in themselves and others, using the 10 Signs framework. Our Leaders give young people the tools and confidence they need to speak out, seek help and keep themselves and their friends safe.

We offer four workshop topics – each workshop can be delivered as a stand-alone workshop, or can be combined with others to create a wider programme for your organisation

Introducing the 10 Signs

Through group discussion, real-life scenarios, and self-reflection, young people learn the 10 signs of a healthy/unhealthy relationship and develop practical tools and strategies to help themselves and others. We recommend that this workshop is a starting point for all young people’s relationship education.

Delving Deeper

Having learned about the 10 Signs, this workshop offers young people the opportunity to explore the signs in different contexts, applying critical thinking skills and a problem-solving approach. Often, in this workshop the young people in the room will choose the signs they want to explore in more detail, allowing them an opportunity to discuss issues that are most relevant to their situation right now.

Intimate Image Abuse

This workshop gives young people a deeper understanding of the consequences of sharing intimate images and equips them with strategies to protect themselves.

Pornography

This workshop challenges young people to think about pornography differently, debunks widely held myths and examines how porn really affects them and their relationships.

All Modules are:

  • 2 hours long
  • Open to all young people between the ages of 11-24
  • Free for state schools, small charities and community organisations
  • Flexible, allowing for different needs, interests and timetables

Impact of our 10 signs programme:

  • Two thirds of young people who attended an LMK workshop told us we had changed their understanding of healthy and unhealthy relationships
  • 81% of young people believe today’s workshop will be useful in their relationships, either right now or in the future.
  • 84% of young people who attended an LMK workshop knew how to seek help for themselves or a friend in an abusive relationship

The Leader connected with all the young people, and they engaged really well, as they could relate to his life experiences and the choices he had made. The scenarios he broke down, like the volatility one, was really powerful and they got it straight away. People really underestimate the importance of relationships and how young people are affected and influenced by the relationships that they get involved in…”

Inclusive Programme

LMK saw that all young people needed a space to discuss their relationships and young people with special education needs and disabilities (SEND) often miss out on these conversations, even though they can be at greater risk of relationship abuse.

We created a programme that provides an opportunity to have safe, open discussions about relationships in ways tailored to the needs of the participants. Developed with SEND professionals, parents of children with SEND, and young people with lived experience, the programme can be fully adapted and makes sure that the scenarios are tailored to experiences of people with SEND and individual learning styles.

Covering the same topics as our regular programme, these sessions are:

  • Run as two x 1 hr sessions
  • Open to young people between the ages of 11-24 with a range of needs
  • Free for state schools, small charities and community organisations
  • Personalised in close collaboration with the your organisation to fit the needs of the group

It is very special that LMK is working with these kids, especially in the area of relationship education. A lot of parents don’t talk about relationships with their children. They don’t have access to all the information surrounding healthy and unhealthy relationships. So, a lot of them are sort of left out. Dedicated lessons like these help explain it to them in their own environment and at their own pace.
