First training on Honour Related Violence in Rome

Last October 28th 2017, the first session of the training on Honour related Violence was held in Rome, at the Faculty of Medicine and Psychology.
Trainees were 23 psychologists (22 women and 1 man); most of them had attended the international conference held last September 18th and had previously exchanged with the project staff witnessing high expectations. Expectations were mostly addressing: a) the understanding of honour related violence; b) the extension of the phenomenon in Italy in particular with respect to migrant communities; c) practical aspects on how to professionally behave when facing HRV cases.

The work started with a test on initial understanding of the phenomenon and used a video as emotional trigger on which develop categories for understanding HRV and competences on “how to do”. Presentations proposed the main results of the WS1 (analysis of the phenomenon) and applied the training tools prepared by the project staff. Case studies were used for promoting the analysis of dynamics typical of HRV; in particular, the Saleem case happened in Italy and the Chafia case happened in Canada. Case studies were used for proposing the risk assessment practices and tools and for understanding the need for organising territorial integrated interventions.

At the end of the training the trained professionals received the “Certificate” of “Ambassador of Honour”.

Here is the programme of the training.
