This training is for practitioners who work in the area of gender equality or in primary prevention of violence against women. Dealing with backlash and resistance comes with the terrain and is a normal part of any social change. That doesn’t mean that figuring out how to navigate resistance isn’t challenging, and sometimes a bit scary.

The training will cover:
- How to identify the different forms and levels of resistance.
- The core principles and strategies to apply when responding to forms of resistance.
- Skills to open up dialogue and feel more confident in having challenging conversations.
- Strategies to support your wellbeing when encountering resistance.
