Visualizing a path to safety
Transcript of Visualizing a path to safety
• Image: Two children standing in the middle of the video screen by themselves with nothing else around. As the narration begins, the image starts to get richer. A sky appears with birds, clouds, sun, etc., then houses start appearing one by one, then a school appears, then workplaces appear one by one, then paths connecting places, etc. Eventually, by the time the narration finishes, you see the children standing in front of a community.
• Narrative/Voice: The IRC aims for positive, meaningful impact in the lives of people we serve. To do this, we must understand the needs of the people we serve, we must think critically about whether our current or previous interventions are meeting or have met those needs and we must design new programs around the evidence or knowledge that exists to improve safety outcomes for children. How do we propose to keep children safe in the place they live? This is the question we will seek to answer as we venture through the ‘Path to Safety’ video.
Scene 1: What do we know causes harm to children? (Evidence)
• Image: The children start walking on a winding path through the community towards their home. They stop in front of the door. Everything else disappears and the house is magnified with the children standing in front of the door. Big dark rain clouds fill the sky, with bright yellow lightning and sounds of thunder on top of the house and children. The children open the door and walk inside.
The clouds have a written message: global evidence for the causes of violence in the home.
Rain drops start to fall on top of the roof of the house. Each drop is magnified with written messages indicating each evidence-based cause of violence against children in the home. After all of the drops have fallen with the global messages, the rain stops and yellow lightning strikes with a message that reads: What are the causes of violence against children in a home setting in this context?
Pause Scene 1: Facilitator script & discussion
• Facilitator: When the lightning strikes, the facilitator pauses the video and initiates a discussion about contextual causes of violence against children in the home (draws a house on flip chart paper and writes all responses in the house and hangs on the wall).
Then poses the questions:
- what are the reasons children are not safe in their homes?;
- how do we know this?;
- Has there been any research conducted in your country about violence against children in the home?;
- Do we have any existing knowledge from programs we have implemented?
This is the moment to facilitate a meaningful discussion about evidence and understanding the difference between concrete evidence and what we think we know. Out of this conversation we will be able to identify contextual gaps in evidence (…which will hopefully lead participants to design research-based programs to fill that gap).
