Training: Cyber violence and perpetrator work

Date & time: 4 & 5 June 2024, 10:00-16:00 CET
Location: Zoom
Language: The event will be in English.
Audience: Our event is designed for professionals working with perpetrators and/or survivors of domestic violence who want to learn more about addressing digital and cyber violence in their programmes.

The training

Cyber violence in relationships is not a separate phenomenon from "real world" violence. It often follows the same patterns as offline violence and is associated with negative psychological and social consequences, as well as worsening quality of life and, often, physical, psychological and sexual violence. Indeed, with the help of social media and smartphones, perpetrators can make their partners feel paranoid and instil in them a constant sense of fear. This two-day practice-based and interactive training is designed for perpetrator work professionals of all levels of experience. The trainers will address challenging questions, such as:

  • What are the mechanisms and forms of online violence?
  • How can you detect online violence with perpetrators?
  • How can you effectively work on online violence with perpetrators?

The trainer

With over a decade of experience in the non-profit sector, Elena Gajotto has been working as a project manager and designer, with a primary focus on the social inclusion of migrants and gender-based violence. Elena has a degree in translation and interpreting, and is also a certified cultural mediator, specialized in working with migrant victims of violence.

Webinar: How to identify and respond to high-risk domestic violence perpetrators

Date & time: 2 July, 16:00-17:00 CET
Location: Microsoft Teams
Language: The webinar will be in English. The speakers can also support participants in Spanish, Catalan and Hungarian.
Audience: This webinar is for professionals working with perpetrator programmes who want to develop a better understanding of risk assessment and managing clients who are assessed as high risk.

The webinar

Have you identified a high-risk perpetrator in your programme? What comes next? Many programmes find it difficult to determine if a perpetrator is high-risk, let alone decide how to respond if he is.
In this webinar, we will discuss tools your programme can use to understand the level of risk your client poses to his partners. We will also discover the practical aspects of different European models and approaches of responding to men who pose a high risk of harming their partners. Join us on 2 July at 16:00-17:00 CET to find out more!
