Against Gender-Related Violence conference for youth practitioners, October 24, London



Gap Work Project Findings Conference

24th October 2014, London

The aim of the Gap Work project is to pilot training that ‘improves the interventions against Gender-related Violence and referrals made by those who work with young people. Training has been developed and piloted in Italy, Ireland, Spain and the UK during 2013 and 2014.

This one day Findings Conference will present the training models that were designed and tested in the 4 EU countries, share reports of the experience, identify lessons from the evaluation studies and invite commentary on the research.

The event will combine presentations of quantitative and qualitative data and comparative reports, of interest to researchers in the field of gender related violence, and interactive development of ideas for the implementation of these findings, particularly in the training and education of those such as teachers, youth workers, social workers and health professionals who work with young people.

The event will be of interest to two main audiences:
– those delivering education and training for practitioners who work with children and young people
– researchers, lobbyists and policy makers

Speakers will include academics from the 5 participating Universities and training experts from the 6 training partners. See our project partner section for the full list of institutions and people.

The event is funded within the project, but registration is essential as places are limited.
