BWSS Professional Training & Presentations

Since 1979 BWSS has had a mandate in adult education, developed curriculum and delivered training workshops.

Based on an empowerment model our curriculum is grounded in theoretical foundations, current research, practical skills. Our training models are designed to enhance awareness, knowledge and skills of participants.  Our trainers are on the cutting edge of analysis and service provision, each with years of experience, each committed to social change through education.

Strategic Interventions

BWSS professional training & presentations are designed to offer information, discussion and practical solutions to the challenges related to specific topics. The presentations are designed to offer theoretical framework, knowledge and skill sets relevant to each particular topic.

Delivered by trained facilitators who work from an empowerment model and from a feminist, anti-oppression perspective, training covers essential topics in order to better understand gender violence, sexual violence, the role of men, challenges to healing and advocacy opportunities to help move forward.
