The aim of the project is to counter violence, especially post-separation violence, which victims experience after separation from the perpetrator. As part of the project, we provide legal and psychological assistance to victims. We provide training for lawyers and psychologists, organise a skills workshop for them, provide work by example, incorporate the perspective of victims, and offer an internship with mentorship. We are developing a manual on setting up self-help support groups for people experiencing violence. We will conduct a qualitative sociological research on a focus group using individual interviews. We will develop a scientific monograph and publish it in print and electronic form for free distribution. Our partners are: Odwikłane z Przemocy (a Polish NGO) and the University of Stavanger and Beatus Cras (Norwegian partners). The results of the research and knowledge on counteracting violence obtained during the study visits in Norway will be used to develop an expert opinion on the implementation of Norwegian good practices, recommendations for research into violence and forecasts of the phenomenon. We want to inspire the Polish violence prevention and justice system with a different approach to post-separation violence. We will make the publications produced during the project available on the Internet and present them at conferences and training sessions. We also aim to empower victims by encouraging them to build a self-help movement.
