The Solution - "Impact"
Violence Prevention Education
“Impact” is a primary prevention program aimed at changing student’s attitudes towards violence by educating them about the negative impacts and providing them with strategies to keep themselves and their mates safe.
In the presentation component, students hear the story of Sam Davis and are given examples of the characteristics of violence and the consequences that it has on victims, perpetrators, bystanders, families, friends and the broader community.
Following the presentation students will break into class sized workshop groups and work with our education facilitators to explore the following topics related to violence:
- Harm, impact and consequences
- Impact groups of violence
- Warning signs
- De-escalation strategies
