Volunteer Bite-Size Training – Victim Blaming Language & How We Challenge It?

June 13 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

In this session, we will explore why we might unintentionally use victim-blaming language & how we can avoid it.

Join us and contribute to the conversation.

Victims blaming language is a subtle way in which we might unknowingly undermine the survivor’s experience of domestic abuse. We want to ensure we are working in a trauma-informed way, that empowers survivors. In all areas of service, we aim to give our clients a space to share their stories without being blamed for their experience of domestic or sexual violence.

Please only sign up for this session if you are an IDAS volunteer.
