Expect Respect – Tools for Healthy Relationships
Presented by Amna Abdullatif
Schools are not often thought about as places where domestic violence can be discussed, yet children and young people who have lived with violence, or are living with it, want to talk about it and make sense of their experiences.
Amna led the Safer Futures project at Women’s Aid in the U.K, which aims to promote and support the education of young people about domestic violence and healthy relationships. Safer Future introduces the Expect Respect toolkit for schools and teachers to enable them to talk about domestic violence with students.
Amna currently runs trainings to support specialists working with pregnant women and children impacted by domestic abuse. She is a community psychologist who has worked with communities, children and women for over 14 years.
Amna is a local politician, a campaigner and activist for women’s rights, with interest in foreign policy and its impact on women, specifically the Middle East and North Africa, and has had her thesis paper published in the Journal of Social Science Education.
