Angus Violence Against Women

Wednesday 13th October 2021 • 10am – 11.30am via MS Teams

Gender inequality is a root cause of violence against women and girls. Gender-based violence is committed disproportionality by men against women and covers a range of violence and abuse.

Dundee and Angus Womens’ Rape & Sexual Abuse Centre is a member of AVAWP. They are a specialist agency in Angus that offers a free, confidential service to all women that live in Dundee or Angus. They have a Dundee and Angus Young Survivors Project that provides support to anyone aged 11 to 18 who lives in Dundee or Angus who has experienced sexual abuse of any kind.

The WRASAC team will be leading the training.

Learning outcomes
Learn, about psychological trauma and how it affects people. Be able to explore how someone with trauma might present in their own workplace. Learn about the work of WRASAC through a case example. Start to consider how this knowledge can help them in
their work. Explore how trauma and working with people affected by trauma can impact workers. Look at self-care and the broader issues that may impact them in their workplaces.

This training will be for workers who want to have a trauma informed approach to their work and who might be meeting and working with clients and service users who have experienced sexual violence. It is not for those working therapeutically with survivors.
