Exploring Children’s Rights introduces key ideas about children’s rights in England and Wales by means of a participative activity, or exercise, that can be used for groups or individuals. It has been created using the author’s own experience of leading training sessions on children’s rights.
This extensively revised 2nd edition equips a group facilitator to lead sessions in:
- types of children’s rights
- power issues in relation to children’s rights
- the historical development of children’s rights
- current and past law on children’s rights.
It offers three versions of the exercise: a group discussion version (1 hour 20mins), a case histories version (1 hour 50mins) and an individual activity (1 hour).
The training will be of interest to anyone who wishes to introduce the complex issue of children’s rights in an informative and challenging way. It is particularly relevant to teachers and trainers in the fields of education, health and social work, but is designed for use by anyone who works with children and young people and who has a real concern for promoting their rights.
