Consent is more than not saying, ‘No’. Informed consent is vital to everyone within our society as is choice. Clarity One is an innovative company created to address growing evidence of reported serious sexual crime and the impact it has on the individuals affected.
Our one- day courses are informative and designed to improve self -confidence and assertiveness whilst giving awareness of criminal law relevant to both victims and those accused of serious sexual crime.
Sexual crimes continue to be on the increase and affect all spectrums of society regardless of social status. Many cases remain unreported. However, Clarity One UK aims to prevent such incidents through awareness for both males and females of what true consent actually means.
Clarity One UK Primary children provides specifically designed, lively and educational courses for children in Key stage 2. The purpose of the courses are to secure key building blocks for adult life skills in respect of healthy relationships and wellbeing. We encourage children to make informed decisions based on equipping them with skills and knowledge such as assertiveness, self-confidence and acting with development when they feel something is wrong.
Clarity One UK Primary is delighted that relationship education is now compulsory in all primary schools in England. This provides us with an exciting opportunity to make a positive difference in enabling children with attributes that will help them become successful and balanced adults making a meaningful contribution to a happier society.
Teaching on wellbeing is paramount and a wonderful opportunity to help our children flourish. Principles of wellbeing should be encouraged and traits of kindness, consideration and respect re-enforced. Clarity One UK reiterates through interactive methods the importance of honesty, truthfulness and knowing how to deal with a situation or set of circumstances when your gut feels it is wrong. In order to implement positive changes with longevity, we must learn them. This will require more than just listening about how to behave. Right brain requires actual doing in order to cement life changing positive qualities. By implementing practices with understanding concerning positive emotional and mental wellbeing, we can begin to make a difference for the better.
Clarity One UK will help protect children by focussing on boundaries. Children will learn what is acceptable and what is not. We can learn this through introducing exercises promoting the importance of taking turns, happy friendships and how it feels when people are unkind. It is essential to develop in a calm but assertive way how to deal with boundaries and personal beliefs that have been compromised. We acknowledge and accept that there is a normal range of emotions (happiness, sadness, nervousness, fear, anger, surprise) and all humans will react dependant on their different experiences. We learn how to communicate effectively when complex situations arise and Clarity One UK is committed to teaching children how to appropriately and proportionately recognise unhealthy situations and deal with them.
Crime prevention can grow. Root principles can be adopted to aid in prevention of serious crime. Tackling issues such as consent, exampled in basic terms, can illustrate clear understanding and resolution for any complex situations that arise in the future.
