SooS Active Consent Workshop for Ty Students

Student Workshop for TY Students

Dear Parent,

The NUI Galway Active* Consent Programme are inviting your child’s class group to participate in a research study that will assess the effectiveness of an eLearning resource which was reviewed and then piloted with young people, teachers and parents and now we need to evaluate it more fully in the class room situation with your support!

SOOS is a one-hour online programme that tackles unhelpful messages about how the media shapes our understanding of body image standards and sexual violence. There are two core modules – The first discusses beauty and attractiveness standards set by the media and focuses particular attention on how unrealistic media messages makes young people feel ashamed and unhappy with their genitals – particularly teenage boys.

The second module focuses on challenging messages that normalize sexual violence. SOOS also provides information on how to be a better communicator in future or current relationships.

We would like you to review the detailed study information sheet, and complete the Jot Form link to the consent form to OPT-IN in if you are happy for your child to participate in this study.
