BOIZ LOCKER ROOM: Empowering adults with skills & legal knowledge for effective communication with adolescents

Overview of the Session:

Boiz locker room incident has brought back into focus the importance of having conversations with children and adolescents on incidents of transgressions as incidents and its reporting continue to surge. One of the pitfalls of having well aware and curious adolescents is the premature exposure to news of sexual and physical violence. Though these could act as a pretext for much needed conversations on sex, sexuality, consent, attraction; absence of it could result in curiosity being fed through uninformed sources or from those that may not be aligned with your values and hopes.

As parents, teachers, caretakers, we may grapple with our own anxieties around the best way and best time to broach these topics. Sometimes, it may not be lack of intent but lack of knowledge and skills that come in the way of having open and candid conversations. Consequently, it’s a missed opportunity to understand the meaning the adolescents make of the news, dealing with their own physiological changes including experiencing arousal and sexual attraction and how to respond to it.

Evolutionary, the intrinsic response to those confusing and sometimes intense emotions of attraction would be to dominate and assert power, not recognizing the traumatic and horrifying impact on survivors of abuse.

The session would focus on building safe spaces at home and school for children of 11-16 years and how to have nuanced conversations on sex, sexuality, consent, attraction etc., signs to identify different forms of abuse and awareness about legal provisions around these topics. 

What will be covered during the session : 

  1. Discussing the challenges faced by families, educators and children currently
  2. Identifying and discussing signs of stress, bullying, abuse etc. faced by children
  3. Learning how to manage your own emotions, creating safe space for children to express and engage
  4. Learning effective communication skills
  5. Learning about laws that impact children (such as relevant provisions under POCSO, IPC, IT Act & Justice Juvenile Act, etc.)
  6. Learning about policies and reporting mechanisms of intermediaries (such as Facebook, Instagram etc.)

Giveaways: List of offenses and punishments.

First of all I just want to thank you to the whole team for such a valuable session...thank u Ms Pankti Gohel for providing us insight of the whole matter which is acutally demanding our attention now a days. Yes it was indeed an informative webinar...being a mother of a boy and of course a teacher , I learnt that NO MEANS NO and this should be inculcated in our kids from their first school that is "home". An open communication is the necessity and this we have to understand. Thank you once again.
