HANDBOOK ON COUNSELLING ASYLUM SEEKING AND REFUGEE WOMEN VICTIMS OF GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE
The handbook was developed by HEUNI and project partners in the “Co-creating a Counselling Method for Refugee Women GBV Victims" project funded by the European Union’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme in 2017-2019. More on about the project.
The handbook is a practical tool for those who work with asylum seeking and refugee women. The handbook might be of interest to you if you are working in an NGO, in a municipality or in a reception centre as a social worker, lawyer, psychologist, health care professional, or similar, giving psycho-social and/or legal assistance to refugee women. We hope that the handbook will give you a better understanding on the causes and consequences of gender-based violence faced by refugee women and help you to develop new skills as well as motivation to assist these women.
