Webinar Details

Sexualised Violence is a common aspect of intimate partner violence (IPV).  While it is common dynamic, it is poorly understood by practitioners (both those who support victim/survivors, and those who work with men who perpetrate violence) and rarely addressed. This webinar provides an overview of sexualised violence within IPV, the dynamics in the context of IPV, and ways practitioners can screen for the presence of intimate partner sexualised violence. This webinar will also provide some strategies and techniques to support men who use violence to examine their use of sexualised violence as a part of their violence perpetration.

Facilitator

Rus Ervin Funk is a long-time activist and community organizer focusing on promoting healthy masculinities; preventing violence; promoting equity, diversity and justice. He has more than 30 years’ experience in mobilizing men to help end violence against women, and working with communities, campuses and organizations.

We also looked at lessons learned and evaluation results from the ENGAGE pilot implementation in France, Italy and Spain - enabling participants to critically evaluate their own referral and training procedures, and to gain an understanding of unused potentials.
