HRC Conducts Training for NGO Lawyers Working on Gender-based Violence Cases

16 October 2018 HRC Training - “Empowerment of Human Rights Defenders in the Process of Advocating the Cases of Gender-based Violence Victims”

On October 9-10, the Human Rights Center (HRC), under the USAID/PROLoG-funded legal aid project “Promote access to justice for women, religious and ethnic minorities in the regions of Georgia,” organized a two-day training for NGO lawyers working on gender-based violence cases. The training was attended by 15 lawyers from various non-governmental organizations.   

The main topic of the training was “empowerment of human rights defenders in the process of advocating the cases of gender-based violence victims.” The training was led by psychotherapists Maia Tsiramua and Ketevan Mgebrishvili from the Georgian Center for the Psychosocial and Medical Rehabilitation of Torture Victims (GCRT). The aim of the training was to assist lawyers to develop skills for effective communication with victims of violence and to deal with professional stress. The participants were pleased with the interactive training and expressed their desire to continue similar trainings for them, their colleagues, and other professionals.
