Video 7: Alert… advise…

This strategy suggests that before you tackle a ‘difficult’ topic, you consult the young person you are going to be talking with, and get some advice as to how to tackle this subject, and what to do if it becomes hard for the young person.This activity complements both Vid 5: ‘How ya doin?’ and Vid 6: ‘Park it and talk.’ They are each stand-alone but make sense in a sequence from 5 to 7.

    Hi Peter, thank you for this.. safety statements and strategies are really important when working with sensitive subjects/topics.. I use safety statements when training in child protection and Aboriginal Cultural Sensitivity and respect, but hadn’t thought of the details of management and strategies.. I just ‘tell people’ what our safety statements and strategies are, instead of asking them.. thank you.. I will reflect on this as I think this kind of negotiated process would minimize one’s fear when working on topics that are ‘tricky/difficult/sensitive’. grateful as always, Joanna

    Thanks for your comment Joaiul. Always appreciate what you have to say. And I agree with you, a negotiated process carries more weight than simply telling a young person. It suggests they really do have some say in what happens. Look forward to more of your thoughts. Ta. Peter
