Webinar: Feminist Approaches to Mental Health Care for GBV Survivors
Join the GBV AoR Community of Practice and the GBViE Helpdesk for a preliminary overview of basic principles and approaches to feminist-informed mental health treatment for GBV survivors. This webinar is to support those working with GBV survivors in humanitarian settings.
Many approaches that GBV specialists currently use when engaging with survivors reflect feminist methodologies, for example, the survivor-centered approach. Yet, there is a gap in guidance from humanitarian settings on what it means to apply an explicitly feminist approach to mental health and psychosocial support interventions, and why it matters in working with survivors of GBV.
In this webinar, the host, Jeanne Ward from the GBViE Helpdesk will be briefly presenting key points from a GBV AoR Helpdesk review of Feminist Approaches to Specialized Mental Health Care for GBV Survivors, and then we will hear from three experts about their experience applying feminist principles in their GBV work in West Africa, East Africa and MENA:
· Caroline Bowah, Director of medica Liberia and co-founder of the Liberia Feminist Forum
· Natsnet Ghebrebrhan, VAW Prevention Coordinator, Raising Voices
· Sahar Mallah, Clinical Psychologist based in MENA, currently developing and piloting a women’s empowerment counseling approach
More links to additional research, guidelines, tools and other resources will also be shared.
