As in the previous meeting of the Working Group, this time we started with the members of the Working Group with the current events in the institutions involved in the protection of women and their children. We continued our education through sensitization training on the issue of violence against women in partner relationships.
Among other things, the members of the Working Group we opened a discussion on the possibilities of help for clients who have experienced violence and repeatedly contact them, on the possibilities of help and support for the client and also on safe housing. We talked about the implemented and planned activities and also about the cooperation with the member institutions of the Working Group.
In the sensitization training part we continued with the members of the Working Group on the topic of myths and facts in the issue of violence against women, sharing experiences from their practice, we opened a discussion on the terms in relation to violence and explained the differences in the use of the terms.
We would like to thank the members of the working group for actively participating in the activities and for sharing their experiences from practice.
