- create 3 prevention programs for schools, including methodology
- test these programs at selected schools
- train new lecturers
- translate Guidebook for Professionals to the Good Pictures, Bad Pictures book
This spring, we finally got the chance to test this program at two schools! At one school, it was taught by our e-couch Kristýna, who works there as a school psychologist. And then Pete taught it together with Vítek, also our e-coach, at another school, whereas the responses were ovewhelmingly positive!
The program for kids ages 14-15 is basically ready, and it only requires a little bit of tuning. Furthermore, we would like to create a prevention program for kids ages 12-13. And if everything goes well, we should also create one for kids ages 10-11, which is the average age of first exposure.
Our e-coach Matěj will be responsible for creating these prevention programs. He will also go through an extensive course on how to be a great lecturer and will build three teams to work on these programs. The team members will be experience lecturers from various organizations. The result will be a creation of three prevention programs with methodology.
Testing it at schools
However, schools already contact us for help, because they are interested in these programs. When we teach seminars, people ask us whether we plan to take this to schools. So people realize it is a big issue.
For example, we got contacted by a school methodologist because there was a case at her school where one kid brought porn to school at the age of 9. And it was a big issue in the class. So althogh porn is a problem mostly for kids 11+, sometimes it starts to be a problem even sooner. And schools are looking for help.
Training new lecturers
In any case, the result of our year-long endevor, besides creating and testing of the three prevention programs, will be a training of new lecturers who will then take these programs to schools where they already teach. We should also mention that several lecturers have already expressed their interest in this topic, and so we are reactiong to their needs.
