Make your programme more engaging

- Guide games to get desirable results for your work
- Determine whether a game or technique is suited for your needs
The ideas about exercises and activities we got from the training are really crucial and could easily be applied with perpetrators especially juvenile and other youths. What is very special about the exercises we covered is that they come from experiences by the trainer and participants, rather than from desk research.

Welcome to the powerful world of using games and interactive techniques to stop gender-based violence and domestic abuse. This two-day training enables you to work on issues like violence, power, gender, masculinity, empathy and many more in an engaging way. It encourages you to be creative, as well as explore and improve your existing skills.
Games and roleplay bypass reluctance of participants and provide them with the opportunity to explore their process of change at an emotional, cognitive, social and behavioural level. In a positive and energising atmosphere, this training answers questions such as:
- How can games and interactive techniques enrich and improve the work with perpetrators of domestic violence?
- How can you introduce this approach to your clients and get them motivated?
- How can you guide the games to get desirable outcomes?
- What games are out here and have shown good results in working with perpetrators?
