About the course

As part of an EU-funded project, the University of Bristol is offering free training for practitioners working with refugee or asylum-seeking (RAS) women who have experienced sexual gender-based violence.

We’ll combine expert teaching with practical case studies and interactive exercises to give you the knowledge, tools and confidence to understand, identify and offer appropriate support to refugee and asylum-seeking women who have experienced sexual violence.

At the end of the course, you’ll receive a Certificate of Attendance from the University of Bristol. Refreshments and lunch are provided each day.

The course takes place over two days between 2-3 October 2017. There are also plans to run the course again on December 12th and 13th.

Who is it for?

Any practitioners who work with refugee and asylum-seeking women as part of their day-to-day role, including:

  • Sexual and/or domestic violence professionals – e.g. ISVAs, SARC workers, IDVAs, refuge workers, outreach or support workers
  • Practitioners or volunteers in refugee and asylum-seeking services
  • Counsellors or therapists
  • Other professionals, such as social workers, health professionals and police officers

About the course leaders

The course is developed and run by experts from the University of Bristol’s Centre for Gender and Violence Research (Dr Geetanjali Gangoli and Dr Lis Bates), together with external experts in sexual violence, trauma, therapy, and working with refugee and asylum-seeking women (Fawzia Bheekhun of the Refugee Council, and Saadye Ali of Refugee Women of Bristol).
