Interactive Webinar: Challenging Rape Culture Through Youth Work

February 9 @ 9:30 am 12:30 pm

With concerns about victim blaming, revenge porn and ‘slut shaming’ hitting the headlines, along with reports of sexual violence in schools and colleges through Everyone’s Invited, so called ‘rape culture’ has led to public protests.

With questions being raised in government about the potential influence of sexualized content in everything from music videos to online porn, gaming platforms to social media, youth workers are well placed to join the debate and play their part in educating and supporting young people to get their voices heard.

In this interactive workshop, we will discuss different examples of rape culture, both historically and in our daily life, and explore some of the theories behind it to consider how it impacts on young people from childhood onwards. From there we will consider the role that practitioners can play in challenging it through youth work to promote healthy, consensual relationships, gender equality and positive self-image for all.

With a perfect blend of theory and practical skills that you can use with young people.

This training consists of real-time sessions techniques, discussion groups and opportunities to practice and network with each other.


By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • What the term ‘rape culture’ means and the historical context
  • Examples of systems, cultural and societal norms that define and reinforce gender roles and stereotypes
  • Consider links between early sexualisation and rape culture
  • Discuss the messages young people internalise about sex, relationships, and consent
  • Look at current campaigns to bring about positive change
  • Identify ways we can begin to change rape culture through youth work

On completion of this course, you will receive a certificate and resources that can be used towards your continued professional development (CPD)


This course will benefit a range of people, including:

  • Teachers
  • Pastoral staff
  • Youth workers
  • Youth Offending teams
  • Social and health care professionals
  • Community groups
  • Parents/carers
  • Volunteers

Nowhere else could I have got the vital information this training provided. Everyone should know what KIP is telling you about drugs and drug misuse and the impact it has on young people lives.”
