Publication date: 

The course-workshop will be held in Bilbao and San Sebastian in January 2022

Course-workshop: ‘Youth violence: origin, nature, types of violence and strategies to prevent it and intervene’

The Basque Youth Observatory is organising the course-workshop titled Youth violence: origin, nature, types of violence and strategies to prevent it and intervene’. Hilario Garrudo Hernández, clinical psychologist, psychotherapist and trainer of trainers, will prepare and deliver the course-workshop. 

The general goal of the workshop is to provide professionals with a perspective and some pedagogical tools to facilitate their work with adolescent males.

Main goals:

  • To provide a meeting point where the staff working with young people have the opportunity to jointly discuss and analyse all aspects related to the violent behaviour of young people and share experiences.
  • To improve the Psychosocial Skills of the participants.
  • To address, as far as possible, the effects that the pandemic may have had on the youth population with which they are working.
  • To optimise the services offered to young people and to alleviate, if possible, the growing social unrest resulting from youth violence.

Specific goals:

  • To discuss, analyse and learn about the origins and nature of juvenile violent behaviour.
  • To learn to identify and manage the emotions, feelings and states of mind that underlie violent behaviour, as well as those that arise in the course of their work (intra- and interpersonal).
  • To detect the psychological and emotional effects of the pandemic on our lives and on the lives of the young people with whom they interact.
  • To provide valuable strategies, resources and tools to manage the issue of youth violence in their daily work, both at a preventive and intervention level.
  • To train in acquiring a series of psychological and social skills (relational, cognitive and, primarily, emotional) to develop personal and professional competencies and apply them when working with young people.
  • To help them implement the acquired skills and abilities with young people to enable them to change their attitude towards violent behaviour and to find alternative and more adaptive responses to the daily difficulties and conflicts to which they are exposed.

Methodology:

It will take the form of a theoretical-practical workshop in which the teacher will introduce concepts and combine them with exercises, situations and practical cases that facilitate both the assimilation of the contents and the acquisition of skills by the students through an eminently practical, active and participative teaching-learning approach.
