This is Abuse discussion guide (2015 version)

Home Office’s 'This is Abuse' campaign on controlling behaviour, abuse, violence and what consent means

NB: The Home Office have now replaced 'This is Abuse' with the 'Disrespect NoBody' campaign. The Disrespect Nobody discussion guide can be found here

The PSHE Association is very pleased to have contributed to the development of the 'This is Abuse' discussion guide supporting the Home Office’s This is Abuse campaign. The campaign is aimed at 13 to 18 year olds helping to prevent them from becoming victims and perpetrators of abusive relationships.  It encourages teenagers to re-think their views of controlling behaviour, abuse, violence and what consent means within their relationships. The guide has been produced so it can be used with a wide range of organisations, including schools, who work directly with young people.

This free-to-download guide was originally published in 2013 but was updated in March 2015 to include new sections on girls and gangs and the sharing of sexual images, or ‘sexting’, as well as more focus on the issue of abuse amongst LGBT young people following contributions from the Government Equalities Office, and reference to new PSHE Association guidance on the teaching of consent.

The ‘This is Abuse’ website has also been updated to include more information for teenagers who are worried about abusive relationships.

When the PSHE Association granted the original resource our Quality Mark in 2013 we called it “an excellent resource for PSHE teachers” and that it provided “everything a teacher should need to set up a powerful piece of learning about this crucial issue”.

PSHE Association subject lead Nick Boddington says of this revised guide:

"We were happy to quality assured the original guide back in 2013 and the additional material makes it an even more useful PSHE resource. It’s great that the latest version also references, and complements, new PSHE Association guidance on the teaching of consent"
