In collaboration with Associate Professor Dr Sajaratulnisah Othman I conducted a training course for Social Workers at the University of Malaya’s Medical Centre.
We covered how to:
- Understand each victims individual situation
Skills training in: Active Listening
- Provide information that might be helpful to victims:
Skills training in: Safety planning
- Support victims to make their own decisions
Skills training in: Motivational interviewing
- Help victims carry out plan (contacting services etc)
Our hope was to make a regular space where we could supervise the social workers and guide them when they were faced with challenging situations. Unfortunately, due to some logistical issues this wasn’t possible.
