New Edit of Transforming Hate in Youth Settings manual launched
The NYCI Equality and Intercultural Programme, together with Dannielle McKenna, Project Manager at Rialto Youth Project, are delighted to bring you this newly edited copy of Transforming Hate in Youth Settings manual.
This educational tool and practice manual presents an innovative approach to transforming hate in youth work settings. Capturing the practice wisdom of Dannielle McKenna and her team at Rialto Youth Project who use Transformative Practice in their work it speaks directly to the challenges faced everyday by youth workers in their work with young people.
Focused on the youth worker, and their practice, it encourages self-awareness, and invites readers to focus on a needs-based and compassionate approach with young people by building connections though empathic listening. It is packed with information that every youth worker needs to know: about hate, how it manifests, where it stems from, and how it is connected into systems of oppression. It shares practice tools that will guide you in your transformative work with young people.
We start with the conviction that incidents of hate will not cease by taking a punitive approach; we believe that change can only happen when we connect and stay connected with young people who cause hurt. When we respond to the young people’s unmet needs, we can enter a dialogue that can make real and lasting change.
Accompanying the manual is its companion, Beyond Hate, which is an activity resource that youth workers can use with young people to explore and transform hate in youth work settings.
