Our resources are based on input from service users and real life stories and experiences. We recommend these are only used with training with professionals. While the resources relevant to our young people’s work can be used with young people, we recommend this is only done by experienced, trauma – informed professionals and only when and/or in a way that means a young person is unlikely to experience further harm from watching these. If they are used in a group environment , please ensure the audience has been risk – assessed for re-traumatisation and that individuals (and/or carers) are aware of the content they will be watching and have the option to op out.
We no longer sell the resources Sick Party and Think Again as we continue to hear anecdotal evidence of them being used in a manner that it is victim-blaming and not trauma-informed, despite our explicit guidance against this and not in the way it was intended. Our own practitioners continue to use them on the few occasions where deemed appropriate but only in a trauma-informed manner alongside other approaches. Please get in touch should you wish to discuss this further with us.
Please note :
– Alright Charlie has specific workbooks that go along with the resource to ensure appropriate use
– Please note that Our Voices contains explicit content and is aimed for an adult audience only.
