Key Stage 1/2 Drug Education: 'Rory' and Little Mouse (Exploring Domestic Violence)
Course length: Full day
Theme: PSHE
Date: 02 May, 2018 09:15

Research shows there is a strong correlation between domestic violence and alcohol misuse and both can have a significant impact on children and young people. This one day course aims to explore the impact of parental alcohol misuse and the associated issue of domestic violence on children and young people. Rory is an interactive alcohol education resource which helps primary aged children to understand parental alcohol misuse. Rory tells the story of a dog who gets confused when his owner begins acting differently towards him. As the story unfolds it becomes clear that his owner’s change in behaviour is due to drinking too much alcohol. The story addresses key issues such as friendship, trust, keeping secrets and feeling safe. In addition we also have Little Mouse Finds a Safe Place. When children have experienced or witnessed domestic abuse and violence, they are frequently left with many confusing and worrying emotions. They can feel responsible, guilty, ashamed, angry with themselves and their parents, frightened and insecure. They need to be enabled by empathic adults to safely express and understand their experience, and to work through and make sense of their feelings. Little Mouse Finds a Safe Place is a children's storybook designed to help professionals support children who have witnessed domestic violence. The book is written by co-trainer and therapist Ann Dix, who has more than 20 years’ experience of working with children and families who have experienced domestic abuse.

The moral of Lila’s story is that if children get into trouble or make a mistake, it is always better to speak to someone they trust to help them. The story aims to build resilience and protective factors. It promotes social support through raising awareness of how to resolve a problem and develops the self-belief to do so. Whilst the resource does not mention alcohol, it has been primarily developed to support children and young people who are affected by someone else's drinking. However, it can easily be used as a basis to introduce issues such as FGM, child sexual exploitation and domestic violence, through encouraging children to talk to someone they trust if they are worried. The Oh Lila resource pack provides a range of materials based on the characters and themes of the Oh Lila story and is a flexible and interactive tool that can be used in working with children to empower them to seek help, be able to identify adults who can provide that help and to assist in the development of new skills which will help build resilience
