• & 6 september: WAVE Multidisciplinary Training on Elder Abuse + Health Sector

    The WAVE office is excited to announce that this year’s Multidisciplinary Training (MDT) opportunity will take place from 5-6 September 2019 in Vienna. The title of the training is “Strengthening cooperation between specialist women’s support services and the health sector in effectively responding to elder abuse”.

    Deadline for registration to attend this exciting MDT is Thursday, July 25th, 2019.

    The WAVE Network, in cooperation with Empowering Old Age Coop – VoiVa, will deliver this interactive multidisciplinary training with financial support from the European Commission. The aim of the 2-day training is to bring together key stakeholders from several European countries to address the barriers and gaps which exist in specialist women’s support services to effectively support elderly women victims of abuse, including to increase the capacity of specialist women’s support services to empower older women victims of abuse by including older women’s issues due to aging and health. The training will provide professionals from women’s organizations (e.g. women’s shelters) with the necessary tools to make their services more accessible for older women, including to improve cooperation with the health sector in cases of elder abuse.

    The target group from these countries are specialist women’s support services for women survivors of gender-based violence. Participants will then deliver knowledge and materials gained to their own organizations and the health sector in their national context. Experiences and materials from two EU-funded projects, WHOSEFVA and TISOVA , will be utilised in the training. The training will be interactive and more practical than theoretical in nature. A maximum of 23 individuals from both EU and non-EU countries are allowed to attend the training. The training will be hosted by two trainers: Sirkka Perttu and Henriikka Laurola (see biographies in the attached PDF).

    Please find important and more detailed information about the MDT in the attached PDF.
