Empowerment, Confidence and Being Me Workshop

This workshop uses drama techniques to teach young people about empowerment- what it is and how to give it to ourselves, how stereotypes affect our self-esteem and what constitutes a positive role model.


What happens in this personal development and life skills workshop?

There are three stages to the workshop:

We will firstly look at what the word empowerment means and what makes us feel empowered, using drama techniques to communicate what makes us feel happy and confident and how we can help ourselves to feel this. We will also talk about which aspects of ourselves we are happy with and which we are not. We will use physical theatre techniques to create short movement pieces in pairs that communicate these aspects.

In the second stage we will look at the way in which we are stereotyped by the media and what expectations these stereotypes create, particularly in terms of our gender roles. This will be done through whole group work using ‘big piece of paper' brainstorming activities.

The final stage will look at what makes a positive and negative role model. This will involve work in small group, using magazines and newspapers to create collages of words and pictures that will then be used to inspire a performance piece.
