The course aims to educate and empower women who have been subjected to abuse to regain ownership of their own lives.
This 12-week programme is designed to be interactive, with lots of short videos, quizzes, and discussion. The course uses multimedia content to explain complex concepts about trauma and abuse in easy-to-understand video clips, along with videos that explore themes, such as disrespect in relationships, abusive behaviour, sexism and misogyny.
The course explores how women can regain ownership of our lives including owning our mind, body, choices, relationships, world, feelings.
