Facilitating radio workshops on the issue of sexual and affective life.
This toolkit consists of video lessons and a manual with method sheets to facilitate radio workshops on the topic of emotional and sexual life with young adults.
Through our activities, we would like to increase young people’s awareness of emotional and sexual life, to make them aware of differences and to make their voices and specificities heard through the radio tool.
Our activities come from a relaxed, inclusive and in-formal educational approach. This toolkit is designed for professionals and volunteers involved with young adults: social workers, journalists, volunteers in radio associations, feminist activists or sex educators. Discover our 4 educational videos with their method sheets, as well as our manual :
DEGREES OF INTIMACY
Activity suggested by Élan Interculturel
This activity encourages participants to learn more about their own relationship to intimacy: What is intimacy for them? Is it the same for their partners? Step by step, the activity invites participants to express themselves on their relationship to intimacy through the microphone. By listening to other people’s stories, the whole group is made aware of the differences in this area and understands that there are as many people as there are relationships to intimacy. The activity also draws attention to the importance of communication between partners in order to better understand each other and to ensure respect for each other’s limits.
INTERVIEWING AN EXPERT ON ISSUES RELATED TO GENDER, SEXUAL AND AFFECTIVE LIFE
Activity suggested by Wired FM
This activity invites participants to create a radio program based on a meeting with an expert on affective and sexual life matters. Discover our advice and step-by-step instructions to best prepare this interview with the group.
CROSS INTERVIEW ON PATRIARCHY
Activity suggested by Jouïr
The activity invites people to tell and act out stories of success in dealing with patriarchy, microphone in hand. Even when a person’s situation has not yet found a solution, telling it is already a victory! The method developed allows people to express themselves and to be listened to, but it also stimulates collective discussions on the issues related to patriarchy.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FACILITATORS
Activity suggested by SkaSka
In this video, we give you some recommendations for making your workshops a space where participants feel comfortable and safe. Indeed, workshops exploring topics such as intimacy, love and sexuality can trigger sensitive spots and painful memories. As the facilitator is not a health professional and does not have a therapeutic role to play, it is important to provide an appropriate setting for participants. We offer here a set of tips to ensure that participants leave the workshop without feeling weakened. If, despite everything, the workshop should awaken painful memories, you’ll find some recommendations to deal with these stories.
