Training on consent matters

At Consent Matters Ireland, we believe that consent is a basic life skill, like politeness or kindness, that we have as a society failed to teach our children, leading to a substantial portion of the population having a very limited understanding of the concept and its fundamental importance within a healthy society. The basics of consent can be easily taught to toddlers and expanded upon as they grow. Consent needs to be a primary element of all approaches to sex education.

Amongst the wide variety of approaches to teaching consent that exist, we have chosen The Wheel of Consent, developed by Dr. Betty Martin, as our primary teaching model. It can be easily adapted for all age groups, in a wide range of situations.

Consent Matters Ireland offers an extensive variety of trainings, lectures and workshops on consent, tailor made for specific groups, including but not limited to: children, teens, young adults, educators, therapists, coaches, sporting organisations, state and private healthcare services, corporations and government bodies.

This is a workshop that every human on earth should have access to. It is not taught in schools. 
Nobody taught it to me. How to say yes and no easily. How to negotiate consent with others. How to 
listen to our intuition about what we really want or don’t want instead of pleasing others or 
upholding the status quo. This is the basis of healthy relationships, communication and society. I feel 
wonderful after attending. This workshop is a safe space to explore the ideas of boundaries and 
consent but also to practice the theory. I came away empowered and deeply content. I can only 
express gratitude for everything I learned.

I attended a CMI workshop on Consent & Communication and I left feeling energised, connected and 
inspired. I learned practical tools (based on the Wheel of Consent) that I am able to apply to my 
everyday interactions with people – family, friends, partners. I have been given a new lens through 
which to view exchanges and I’m finding it extremely valuable. I am more aware of the intention behind 
my actions and I have the language to clarify this with myself and other people. I found the workshop 
fun, safe and nourishing, and I would love to participate in a training or other CMI events in the future.
