Duration of the Course: Learning outcomes: Toolkit: The YEIP toolkit is made up of four sections (theory, videos, self-reflection tools and external resources). Below are brief descriptions of the content of each section: Section 1: Theory The theory consists of four sections and these sections represent the crucial areas of intervention among young people in preventing their violent radicalisation. The areas are compiled under four sub sections: Understanding the radicalisation phenomenon This section explains what radicalisation means, what it consists of and how it can be prevented. Good lives model and positive psychology: self-confidence, self-acceptance and self-empowerment This section provides tools that use positive psychology and the good lives model to help young people to improve their self-confidence and make them conscious of their strengths, in order to prevent radicalisation. Listening to young people and promoting their participation from a human rights perspective As a result of young people resenting the traditional top-down approach to combating radicalisation, this section helps facilitators engage better with young people to listen more effectively. This section also empowers young people to have a voice and participate more effectively in decision-making.
