Some #FridayThoughts A few years ago I was speaking to a US sports coach about performance and issues that can lead to poor performance. I remember him using the term "look under the hood". Seeing the clip below reminded me of this conversation. Let's explore this 1/5
In my policing career I often defaulted to the "They are just bad". Looking back I took the easy route to describe behaviour. In recent years I forced myself to "look under the hood'. What Coach Meyer says is relevant. People may do bad things but I don't see them as bad 2/5
What you may see will be the addictions, the violence, the offending, the victimisation, the homelessness. When you 'look under the hood' you will start to see the following - trauma, fear, lack of trust, poor relationships, lack of role models, lack of hope. 3/5
Some people see these issues but aren't prepared to go further. As coach Meyer says you need to go deep. When you go deep you start to see the person and ways to help support them. As said by @suzannezeedyk "Relationships are the intervention". 4/5

For those men who like me are appalled by the behaviour of the few here are some resources to watch. @TEDTalks by friend @jacksontkatz A go to for me. Men have a clear role in prevention of all forms of violence. Why? Because men commit most of it 1/8
Now, i know it's not all men. But it's just enough to "Fuck it up for the rest of us". Another piece by Katz talking about men's role in prevention. Whilst we need to hold men accountable we also need to explore the culture that supports abuse. 2/8
We can walk and chew gum at the same time. Hold perps accountable but at same time inspect our culture. Yes it may be uncomfortable but move past this. Check out @TEDTalks by @TonyPorterACTM Learn to explore the culture that boys and men live in 3/8

Being doing a lot of reading on the issues of knife images. Thanks to @RobertCialdini for supporting this Ok. Bear with me. It is widely recognised that communications that activate social norms can be effective in producing societally beneficial conduct. 1/13
Not so recognised are the circumstances where normative info can backfire to produce the opposite effect of what the communicator is trying to achieve. It’s understandable why people want to mobilise action against it by depicting it as regrettably frequent. 2/13
Examples include drug taking, alcohol consumption. Although true , campaigners, police & media have missed something important. Within the statement many people are doing this undesirable thing lurks the powerful & undercutting normative message “many people are doing this” 3/13
