Two outstanding series designed for senior secondary students and their teachers explores challenging and important issues surrounding respectful relationships, including sexual harassment, domestic violence, misogyny in pornography, pornography versus reality, and the sharing of intimate images.
Starting the conversation about respectful relationships
As an educator, you’re in the unique position of being able to facilitate important, and sometimes challenging conversations with your senior students. ClickView’s two original series, Respectful Relationships and Respectful Intimate Relationships series have been specifically designed to give you the tools and resources you need to teach these topics with confidence.
ClickView is committed to providing you with the resources you need to deliver age-appropriate and evidence-based respectful relationships education. These two series have been developed with subject experts to raise awareness of problematic behaviours among young people and create healthy attitudes towards sex and relationships.
Series 1 synopsis, Respectful Relationships:
During filming of a light-hearted production set in Victorian times, the dialogue and ‘real life’ conversations between actors and crew explore important topics including:
- How social constructs around gender can contribute to sexist and homophobic attitudes, unreasonable expectations, and gender inequality.
- The importance of enthusiastic consent and to respect others’ autonomy at all times.
- Different levels of sexual harassment, from ‘just a joke’ banter that constitutes harassment, through to more overt examples of catcalling and physically invading personal space.
- Domestic violence, including how abusive relationships often occur over time, and the important role of the bystander.
Series 2 synopsis, Respectful Intimate Relationships:
A cast and crew film a pirate-themed series about respectful intimate relationships. Through four episodes, they discuss and explore topics including:
- How pornography is made for the ‘male gaze’.
- Recognising and seeking help for pornography addiction.
- The impact of non-consensual sharing of intimate images.
- Privacy, sex shaming, revenge porn and victim blaming.
