Key Info

  • Duration: 03:26
  • A young person describes how their behaviour led to them being given an Anti-Social Behaviour Order (ASBO). The clip also outlines the effect of anti-social behaviour on communities as well as discussing the 'naming and shaming' of individuals. This clip is taken from 'Close Up North: Counting the Cost', first broadcast in March 2003.
  • Subject:

    Society Health and Development


    Working Together

  • Keywords: ASBO, anti social behaviour order
Ideas for use in class
  • The class could have a debate about the alternatives to deal with antisocial behaviour. Explore how the media portrays antisocial behaviour and the fear of crime. After viewing the clip, split the students and ask them to prepare and present a case, one for and one against giving Jason an ASBO. They should explore the full range of alternative sentences and orders. They can also consider alternative routes out of this kind of behaviour, such as school and youth community projects. What is available in your area? They should consider peer pressure, fairness, impact on family, length of time ASBOs are in force, naming and shaming and the potential for mediation and referral. It should be noted that ASBOs are generally a last resort and many if not all of these will have been tried before a full ASBO is granted.
