So Called ‘Honour Based Abuse’, Forced Marriage & FGM

Includes the half day above, but extends to address ‘honour’ based violence, forced marriage and female genital mutilation and its prevalence. Participants will be encouraged to:

  • explore the complexities and dynamics of abusive relationships in relation to honour related abuse and its impact on victims and children
  • challenge the common myths, stereotypes and social tolerance of domestic and sexual abuse and those associated with honour’ based violence, forced marriage and female genital mutilation
  • identify practice issues and cultural sensitivity/community beliefs to enable effective support of victims in responding to the threat, harm and risk of abuse

This workshop uses group exercises and dvd materials to enhance learning and awareness raising.
