The FASA project in one year: the updates from the partnership
The FASA project is focused on enhancing the Work-based skills of Social Care Practitioners and professionals in the field of Intimate Partnership Violence victim support, through Capacity Building on the topic of Treatment of Victims of Intimate Partner Violence with Problematic Substance Use.
During COVID-19 pandemic situation, an increase in intimate partner violence has been a worrying consequence in EU Member States and globally. Lockdown measures imposed in many countries have increased the exposure of victims to perpetrators, with increased levels of stress and economic instability potentially exacerbating the issue.
Moreover, our FASA project was a needed project focus on the creation of specialised training material and tools, to facilitate the implementation of innovative interventions based on the multi-agency approach and to promote professionals to apply substance use and victim support simultaneously, as problems of one multi-sided phenomenon and after the pandemic situation we confirm that it has converted in a useful and needed learning tool.
It a pleasure to say that we have finished the IO1 Analytical report on women survivors of intimate partner violence and problematic substance use, that we want to share with you at this link.
Next steps will be the creation of the Training Manual for professionals; VET Course structure and modules for professional; Online Learning Space and Massive Online Open Course and Guidelines for Social Care professionals in the field of Substance Use.
In this year our partnership has had to learn managing new professional and personal circumstances and being capable of keeping contact and well-being during these difficult moments. Furthermore, we have made bigger our relationship and our FASA family has lived nice online meetings full of smiles and good wishes.
