Keepin it REAL introduces students to the resistance strategies of Refuse, Explain, Avoid and Leave, whilst addressing effective decision-making and communication skills. The programme also addresses conflict management, stereotypes of young people and influences on behaviour in addition to exploring support networks.
Engaging activities and a workbook are included to involve students in their own learning. Through sharing their own stories, practicing decision making and role-playing the REAL resistance strategies, students gain mastery of new skills.
Keepin it REAL’s key learning tool is a series of videos that show teenagers and their own, real stories about being offered drugs and other difficult situations.
