The Women's Association Pescanik started with activities aimed at establishing self-support groups for women who survived violence. So far, we have implemented 2 trainings. Participants of the training were SOS Helpline consultants and users of this service, since the facilitating team of self-support groups will be one consultant and one woman with experience of violence. In training, they improved their knowledge about group work and capacity to establish and manage self-support groups. At the first training, the emphasis was on individual empowerment and capacity building of participants, while on the second accent was on empowerment and capacity building of co-leader pairs.
The third seminar for media professionals was held for all interested journalists from Serbia, on June 2nd and 3rd 2017. The topic of the seminar, organized in cooperation with Autonomous Women's Center and Network of Women against Violence, was a gender-sensitive reporting on violence towards women. There were 18 participants from 12 media houses.
Last Sunday, on May 29th 2017, the Women's Association Pescanik held another training for local institutions and governments on institutional protection from domestic violence for the municipalities of Varvarin and Cicevac. The seminar is a part of the accredited program of the Autonomous Women's Center from Belgrade - Coordinated action in the local community in prevention and protection from domestic violence, and the trainers were Jeca Nedeljkov, psychologist and Marija Banauh-Brusin, social worker.
