All forms of violence are rife in our South African communities. During the COVID-19 lockdown period, record numbers of people reported incidents of violence at home. Government and NGOs launch campaign after campaign to raise awareness of Gender-Based Violence.

Aquilla Training’s online workshop raises awareness by looking at this form of violence from different angles because all the people serving in helping professions have a role to play in mitigating this problem. We look at the facts and myths about Gender-Based Violence as well as Domestic Violence because violence becomes everyone’s problem. We discuss the abuser, rape, and sexual abuse. This workshop is compiled by Dr Barbara Louw. The purpose of this workshop is to empower people who care about others to make a difference by being able to identify the problem and knowing where to start to look for help. Let’s be part of the solution and work toward helping people to become well and whole.

If you are in an abusive relationship this workshop will empower you to take a step back and look the situation in the eye. Please take the courage to stand up and get help. You are never alone.
