From risk to relationship: Tackling, youth violence and negative behaviour - London
@Oasis Church Waterloo, 1 Kennington Road, London, SE1 7QP
Young people today are facing pressures of an unprecedented nature. What the media narrative often fails to grasp is that ‘gang culture’ is just one consequence of these pressures. Those same pressures are causing young people to lack in self-worth and make negative and destructive choices.
For several years, Oasis has operated a youth support service out of two London hospitals, helping young people in danger of violence. Through this – and with over 35 years of wider youth work, research and training – we have gained crucial insights into the factors that influence negative behaviour in whatever form it manifests itself and crucially, how and how to facilitate transformation.
Join us for a one-day event in central London to explore: How to challenge negative behaviour through positive relationships The issues behind youth violence and how to work with young people in such situations Facilitating conflict transformation The issues and wider narratives - political, social and theological Practical ways of working with young people when challenging negative behaviour
