Trauma-sensitive psychosocial work
medica mondiale assists women and girls to talk about and cope with their experiences of violence. Local psychosocial counsellors help women survivors regain their self-esteem and develop new prospects for the future. Measures are also taken to raise awareness in their families and communities of the causes and consequences of sexualised violence, including them in the efforts to establish safety nets to protect women from violence.
