Hosted on July 7, 2020, this webinar was presented by Reema Sharma, Manager of Outreach and Community Education, Womankind; and Alena Victor, Director of Residential Programs, Womankind.
There has been a growing interest among refugee service providers in understanding the dynamics of gender-based violence (including domestic violence and sexual violence). This webinar will be an opportunity to hear from a local, culturally specific organization, Womankind, learn the basics of understanding and recognizing gender-based violence (GBV) within refugee and immigrant communities, and explore what a culturally responsive approach to GBV services can look like.
By the end of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Define gender-based violence (GBV) and describe the multiple ways it manifests;
- Describe the importance of survivor-centered and trauma-informed approaches;
- Identify common GBV flags within a family dynamic; and
- Name basic steps for determining appropriate support.
