Starting a Conversation

This section of the website gives some key pointers about how to start a conversation with a child, young person or young adult about the themes in the Core Questions. These key pointers have been co-designed between practitioners and children, young people and young adults throughout the Not Just a Thought… project.

Overall, children, young people, young adults and practitioners should be treated as equals with mutual respect for each other. A conversation should be just that – a two way dialogue not an interview. Children, young people and young adults should be seen as part of the solution.
