This section of the workshop helps young people to discuss possible factors that can be termed as Risk factors that might make young people vulnerable to Abuse.

Students think about possible traits in a child’s/ young person’s behaviour, if they are going through abuse. Students discuss how to recognise risky or negative relationships including all forms of bullying and abuse.

The trainer initiates discussion about different recognised categories of child abuse, i.e. Physical Abuse, Emotional Abuse, Sexual Abuse and Neglect.
