Rethinking Domestic Violence
A Training Process for Community Activists
How can training be made personal and accessible to a wide range of community members and service providers? Raising Voices developed the Training Process to serve as a tool for strengthening the capacity of NGO staff, community members and service providers to prevent domestic violence. The training process can be used as:
- A series of training sessions that can be used individually or as a part of a longer process.
- A practical tool for trainers and activists who want to begin a process of change in their community and encourages discussion and ideas for action to prevent domestic violence.
How the Training Process Works
The Training Process contains four major sections, each offering a series of two-hour modules designed to strengthen capacity of participants to prevent domestic violence.
- Section One: Becoming Aware of Gender and Rights
- Section Two: Deepening Understanding of Domestic Violence
- Section Three: Developing Skills and Personal Qualities
- Section Four: Taking Action to Prevent Domestic Violence
You do not need to be an expert to use this Training Process! All of the interactive modules have been extensively field-tested in Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya and were designed to be simple and accessible for trainers with a range of experience.
