This exciting event celebrates the launch of the VictimFocus Academy and Resources Collection, an innovative new international service providing evidenced, critical and ethical resources, tools, books and products. The new collection of resources and education aim to support the field to improve our responses to people who have experienced violence, abuse and trauma.
With a focus on developing professionals and students towards anti-victim blaming, anti-stigma, traum informed and strengths based approaches, Jessica Eaton will present discussion, debate and findings from her work and from her new resources and services. VictimFocus business model is an ethical approach to provision of resources and education, with much of the new products being completely free and with all products being priced to be very affordable.
