Escape from the Maze of Violence

We have been working to reduce the incidence of domestic and sexual violence in the Czech Republic. The truly great interest in the services offered has confirmed our belief in the need for activities aimed at victims, their relatives and those who have difficulty controlling their aggression. The key activity of our organisation is professional social counselling; we have gained valuable impulses for its improvement through further education of our staff, such as training by the Norwegian organization FMSO or Ms. Slávka Karkošková, PhD. In our further work we focused on the development of knowledge and competencies of the professional public, education, and instigating lasting changes in society both at the level of the target group’s attitude and overall knowledge of the issue and at the interdisciplinary and system level. We will try to keep up the counselling service in full. We continue our successful cooperation with the City of Brno: an interdisciplinary team to help the victims of sexual violence, which was created thanks to this project, will be integrated (similarly to the interdisciplinary team to help victims of domestic violence, which exists under the law) into the City of Brno’s strategy, which is a significant step towards a general legitimisation of the problem at the local authority level, as well as confirmation of the necessity of specialisation and training of experts in this field.
