In the last months, in the framework of SUNIA GEEL 2 project (co-funded by Daphne programme), some meetings regarding the theme of domestic violence took place with Domestic Violence (DV) experts and representatives of Safe houses for victims of violence of Palermo.
The aim of these meetings was developing an intervention programme for DV perpetrators in order to help them to:
- become aware of the seriousness of the violence committed and consequences of their behaviour
- take on the responsibility of this
- change their behavioural aptitudes
These meetings represented the opening phase for other project activities that in the next few months will be directly addressed to perpetrators.
Similar activities are taking place in other partner countries (Ireland, Austria, Germany and Romania).
