OBJECTIVE: making teenagers aware of the existence of domestic violence in many of their relationships.



1.- Warm up: What’s domestic violence? Brainstorm either English or Spanish, it depends on the level.

2.- Video watching: they should watch first just the part in which the two teenagers are arguing and comment: (this could be done either big group or in small groups where they can discuss a little)

  • What’s happening? What are they doing? Where are they?
  • What’s their relationship? what’s the boy saying? What does he want? Why is he angry with her? Does he trust her? Why does he throw her mobile phone?
  • Who is the girl behind the glass? What is she trying to do?
  • Can you see any abuse?


3.- Second part of video: interview to a teenager who suffered abuse. The task would be just try to understand a few key words and imagine what she must be telling:

Control…. Power……mobile phone…

4.-Third part of video: interview to ad director.

Fill in the gaps:

“… the importance of the _________________ of the scene…… …how they are breaking down somebody’s __________________, breaking down somebody’s_______________................ removing them from their _____________”

5.- Rest of video: any more key words you understand?

Police…. Ambulance….. out of control……fight onto me…..


“the advertising campaign intends girls realise physical violence from her boyfriend is unacceptable


One of the Home Office's new television adverts directed by Shane Meadows

6.- Reading and comprehension questions either in small groups or all together.


An advertising campaign is being launched to raise awareness of domestic violence in teenage relationships.

The adverts will target boys and girls aged 13 to 18, urging them not to use violence against their girlfriends.

The £2m TV, radio, internet and poster campaign is part of a government strategy announced last year to reduce violence against women and girls.

Home Secretary Alan Johnson said it was essential to change attitudes in order to stop abuse against females.

He said: "We want to see young people in safe and happy relationships and this means tackling attitudes towards abuse at an early age, before patterns of violence can occur.

"We hope this campaign will help teenagers to recognise the signs of abuse and equip them with the knowledge and confidence to seek help, as well as understanding the consequences of being abusive or controlling in a relationship."



Answer the questions

  1. Who are the targets of this campaign?
  2. How much did the campaign cost?
  3. What’s the objective of this campaign?



Controlling behaviour

The campaign follows research by the NSPCC.

The study suggested a quarter of girls aged 13 to 17 had experienced physical violence from a boyfriend and a third had been pressured into sexual acts they did not want.


 It's a message I fundamentally believe in, and it's what most of my films have been about - finding another way of leading your life

Film director

The children's charity said it was alarmed by the number of young people who viewed abuse in relationships as normal.

Diana Sutton of the NSPCC said she hoped the campaign would encourage teenagers to come together to tackle the problem.

"Many teenagers perhaps don't talk to their parents and maybe it's not that comfortable to talk to a teacher," she said.

"So any initiative like this that reaches out and gets them to talk about it amongst their peer group will be very important, and really say it's absolutely not appropriate to punch, or hit, or slap, or pressure your partner into early sex."

One version of the advert shows two teenagers lying on a bed watching television.

When the girl gets a text message from a friend the boy dislikes he loses his temper, throwing her phone to the floor and grabbing her by the hair.



  1. How many girls experienced physical violence?
  2. How many girls were pressured into sexual act?
  3. What’s not appropriate in a relationship?




'Powerful lesson'

The TV advert's award-winning director Shane Meadows said he wanted to highlight the problem of emotional violence, including verbal insults and controlling behaviour such as monitoring text messages.

"It's a message I fundamentally believe in, and it's what most of my films have been about - finding another way of leading your life. It's a very powerful and valuable lesson," he said.

Christine Barter from Bristol University, who led the study, said long-term intervention in schools was also needed.

"[They need] to look at what is happening in peoples' relationships, to say to them, 'This is a serious issue, we do take your relationship seriously, we take the concerns you have in those relationships seriously'.... to challenge the violence and intimidation and control that is in those teenage relationships as it is in adult relationships."

Psychologist Dr Linda Papadopoulos said the extent and pervasiveness of abuse outlined in the report were "quite startling".

She told BBC Radio 4's Today programme many girls had an expectation that "boys will be boys" and violence would happen anyway.

"It is very interesting, the way it happens. It's much more about mind control. Through the language used, 'He doesn't allow me to do this, he wouldn't like me doing this'.

"It's as if the boy speaking to them like this is a way of them valuing them. As if they think, 'He cares enough to be jealous', and that is what is particularly worrying."



  1. What’s the name of the director of the video?
  2. What did he want to highlight in it?
  3. What is a valuable lesson for Meadows?
  4. What expectations have some girls got about boys?
  5. Being jealous means your care for somebody? Do you agree?


7.- ROLE PLAY a different ending, a different way of facing the situation. She should learn another way to react but HE should also try… don’t you think???
