Violence against women and girls

Violence against Women and Girls, Crime Prevention & Personal Safety Training


Course Background

While both men and women can be victims or perpetrators of violence, women are more likely to be physically assaulted or murdered by someone they know; women are also at a much greater risk of being sexually assaulted or exploited in childhood, adolescence, or adulthood.

A study undertaken by the World Health Organisation estimates that 35 percent of women around the world, at some point in their lives, have experienced physical and/or sexual violence by an intimate partner or sexual violence by a non-partner.

“Violence against Women and Girls” refers to any act of gender-based violence that results in or is likely to result in physical, sexual, or psychological harm or suffering to women or girls, including threats of such acts, coercion, or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or in private life.

This half day training course aims to raise awareness of the risks women and girls may experience in the home and when ‘out and about’ alone. The training provides delegates with a host of skills and safe strategies to recognise and engage safely with women and girls who may be at risk.

The training course is delivered in a sensitive and engaging manner, with an emphasis on the opportunity for questions and discussion. The learning process is very interactive and involves a variety of exercises designed to motivate and educate participants.
