Can you recognize love? True love?
DISCUSSION | HERA Youth: Can you recognize love? True love?
Moderator: Maja Balshikjeska
Speakers: Despina Stojanovska – First family center; Naser Durmishi – First family center; Elena Dimushevska – National network against violence against women and domestic violence.
The statistics about this very little talked subject say that 1 out of 5 young female teenagers and women is a victim of violence in a relationship. What are the signs, how to recognize, and how to get out of the circle of violence in a relationship? A social worker and a psychiatrist will be talking about the practice of FFC (The First Family Centre that works with offenders, children and women survivors of gender based
violence) and they will be focusing on the most common cases of violence in relationships, but also on the main features of the violent masculinity, and the work with the offenders. The discussion also imposes the question: What actions are taken on national level; are there any interventions in the educational programs; where do you report and where do you ask for help for violence in relationships?
