Women who have experienced gender based violence may show symptoms that include difficulty regulating emotions, aggression and dissociation. Commonly we also see that women cope with hyper arousal with substance addictions or self-harm. They often present with issues of Powerlessness, Shame and guilt. We will look at these issues in your training as well as how to move to the next stage by establishing a sense of safety and employing coping strategies to self-manage emotions and strengthen skills for managing painful memories.
If you want to enquire about training or awareness raising for your organisation please call our office on 0141 552 3201 and speak to the centre manager.
We can also offer sexual violence prevention training and workshops, which looks at attitudes around gender based violence and where they come from. We can deliver awareness raising workshops and information sessions to help to inform your staff or youth groups. This is also available in schools in Glasgow through the ROSEY project.
