According to the World Health Organization and the Department of Violence Studies, some of the most promising strategies to address violence at young ages include programmes that involve families, have early childhood development interventions, life skills development, bullying prevention, therapeutic approaches, and finally, several strategies at the community and societal level such as policing dangerous areas, drug control programmes, and reduction of access to weapons, among others. This supplement hopes to contribute to the advancement of programmes that reduce violence in communities by aiming to develop life skills, prevent bullying, and at the same time involve families in doing so.
Each Thematic Supplement is designed to be taken in 6-10 additional courses to complement Aflatoun’s core curricula, and compiles essential activities about a specific topic aimed at different age groups of children, young people and their caregivers. The user may choose the activities that meet their needs. Ideally, the activities under each section can be done sequentially, but if needed and if some sessions were already covered in other occasions, the activities can be done as stand-alone activities. All supplements can be used in formal or non-formal education settings.
The supplement was funded by The Botnar Foundation and Vitol Foundation and were developed based on the results of a consultation with partners in the Aflatoun network.
