The present training manual contains basic information and training material relating to the issue of violence against women in intimate relationships. It is designed for use in training and further training courses for professionals in various fields. The training programme has been drawn up as part of a project carried out by
the WAVE Office in Vienna and the EU Commission's DAPHNE Initiative.
It came about under the auspices of WAVE's European-wide activities and in close
collaboration with experts from the member organisations of the European Network against Violence.
Special importance attaches to training and consciousness-raising for professionals dealing with the victims of violence against women and children as an
effective means of preventing such violence. Confidence and professionalism in handling appeals for help and the provision of fast and efficient support can alleviate
the hardships and in some cases avoid further violence (tertiary prevention).
