PEACE I focuses on learning how to work from a feminist and child-centred perspective. Participants learn important background on child and youth development, and how a child or youth’s development may be affected by exposure to violence. PEACE I looks at two specific areas of child and youth development that are particularly relevant: attachment and resilience. It discusses how to work with children and youth who come from minority or marginalized backgrounds, and how to foster community awareness and advocacy on behalf of these children and youth, and their families. This course is also useful to others supporting children and youth who are experiencing violence.
