Transforming Hate: A Compassionate Approach (in English) / Aim: To equip youth workers to support young people in transformation by looking deeper than just their words/attitudes/behaviours but at their feelings and needs. / This short workshop will explore some of the deeper motivations and reasons why young people resort to hate speech. By recognising and understanding all behaviour - positive or negative - as an attempt to meet a need, the youth worker can transform their approach to challenging situations, which in turn will help young people to transform. This workshop will offer concrete tools for responding in difficult situations and having open and constructive conversations after they have taken place. By going deeper and helping young people recognise where their behaviour and feelings come from, a compassionate approach offers a useful starting point for better and clearer communication.
