General Information about the Workshop

Our extended workshop program enables teachers, educators, youth group leaders and other interested parties to raise awareness about the "loverboy" method. Young people will learn to recognize the “loverboy” method, understand the psychology behind it and how to protect themselves. By actively reflecting on what it means to be in a healthy relationship and tips to strengthen the self-confidence of the participants, the danger of becoming a victim should be reduced.

Target group

The workshop is aimed at children and young people aged 13 to 19. For younger students we recommend this short clip "Schafsunglück" ("Sheep Calamity"; only available in German).  

More Information on "Schafsunglück" ("Sheep Calamity") 

With this EU-funded video from Sheeplive (video only available in German) the strategies of "loverboys" and other perpetrators on the Internet are illuminated. The short film shows how contact and gradual alienation of other confidants can take place. It has many parallels to real-life situations. The positive aspects of the internet should also be explained at the beginning, as it harbours not only risks but also opportunities.

Introductory questions could be: Who goes online? With or without parents? What great things can you do there? Are there also dangers on the Internet?

Watch the short film from Sheeplive together with the group. Then lead a discussion round. Clarify what the people in the video stand for in the real world. Make sure that you have understood the danger the video is trying to highlight.
Possible discussion questionsWhat did the sheep in the video do? How did it put itself in danger? What do the individual characters in the film stand for? The wolf, the sheep, the shepherds, the hunter, the other sheep? What can the little sheep do to prevent something like this from happening to it again?
