Sociologický ústav AV ČR, v.v.i., a katedra sociologie Institutu sociologických studií FSV UK si Vás dovolují pozvat na jarní cyklus Čtvrtečních sociologických seminářů.

In September 2019, it will be compulsory for primary and secondary schools in England and Wales, UK, to include relationship education as part of their Personal, Health and Social Education (PSHE) curriculum.

In anticipation of the compulsory relationship education coming into force, Dr Em Temple-Malt (Sociology), Paul Christie and Bobby Fletcher (academics from Drama) are collaborating with practitioners from Arch (North Staffs) who deliver a domestic abuse prevention education programme Relationships without Fear (RWF) in primary and secondary schools, colleges and alternative education settings. The research project is piloting improvements to the educational materials that Relationships without Fear domestic abuse prevention education programme. The improvements involve beginning the educational programme with drama that focuses on unhealthy relational practices in young people’s relationships and revised attitudes towards domestic violence (ADV) questionnaires to test the efficacy of the educational programme.

These new educational materials were showcased at an event hosted at a secondary school, in Stoke-on-Trent, in April. The audience were made up of 20 x 13-14 year olds, safe guarding professionals and primary and secondary school teachers who deliver PSHE lessons. First, a group of second year undergraduate acting and theatre arts students from Staffordshire University presented three short theatre productions to participants. Next, these participants were invited to give feedback about the drama pieces and to review and give feedback on our questionnaires, in a world café discussion event. This talk presents some preliminary data from the world café event.   


Dr Em Temple-Malt is a Senior Lecturer in Sociology and Criminology at Staffordshire University and postgraduate course leader of the Sociology and Criminology programmes. Her expertise and research lies within:

*The use and teaching of qualitative, creative research methods
*Analysing the implications of changing social attitudes towards sexual minorities in the UK over the past 30 years and studying the impact that living in this current ‘era of equality’ has on sexual minorities everyday lives
