SoSAFE! Concepts, Tools and Resources
SoSAFE! provides teachers, counsellors and other professionals with simple visual tools to enhance the training of social, socio-sexual and social safety skills. The explicit, rule based format allows the learner to respond to situations, including intimate relationships, without having to make discretionary decisions, in response to their feelings or ‘early warning signs’.
The Talk Touch Triangle
Teaches the type and degree of verbal and physical intimacy appropriate with different categories of people. Levels of verbal and physical intimacy are specified and taught for each person type.
Steps to Relationship
Teaches ways of moving into intimate relationship in a safe and measured manner. STR is based on the concepts taught in the Talk Touch Triangle. Its main purpose is to encourage students and clients to move into intimate relationships in a gradual and safe manner starting with ‘meeting people’ and followed by four additional stages, all involving the concept of ‘consent’.
The People & Relationship Book
Incorporates information from the TTT and STR and OK Helpers, and constantly accompanies the student or client in all domains of their lives (residential, educational/vocational and recreational).
Call my OK Helper
A network of trusted people to be contacted if in need of help, including their contact details, and the Help Page (a visual communication tool for reporting abuse). Plus Templates, Social Scripts, Lotto Files and more resources.
SoSAFE! Training Pack
The one-day SoSAFE! Workshop is an essential part of the program framework. Each workshop participant receives a SoSAFE! Training Pack consisting of a Manual and CD ROM.
The Manual provides a comprehensive range of teaching strategies, lesson plans, scripts and teaching sequences as well as forms and tools for administrative purposes.
The CD ROM contains a comprehensive package of printable resources. These include The Talk Touch Triangle; Steps To Relationship; People & Relationship Books; Lotto Games; administration forms including letters, survey forms, permission notes; Microsoft PowerPoint presentations of the social teaching stories used to teach the program’s key concepts.
The CD ROM licenses the workshop participant (SoSAFE! User) to print off as many resources as are required to service the training and ongoing support needs of 50 clients (SoSAFE Client). Additional CD ROM licenses can be purchased as required.
