Examples of questions during the animation

This web capsule, which can be viewed in different contexts, was created as a pedagogical tool to support professionals (psychosocial workers and teachers) in their awareness and prevention activities.

In fact, the web capsule was designed to interest and make young people think about difficult times. The discussions that will ensue will highlight the fact that no matter what young people are going through, there are a lot of resources in Laval that can help them throughout their lives.

Here are some examples of questions to ask after viewing the web capsule. You are free to use them or to draw inspiration from them during your presentation.
