Tulir Annual Public Workshop

Tulir’s Sixth Annual Public Workshop - “An Overview and Understanding of working against Child Sexual Abuse”, will be held on August 17 & 18, 2009 at Chennai. The cost of the workshop which will be in Tamil is Rs.1500/per person. Vegetarian lunch, tea and workshop materials will be provided. Registration is limited to the first 40 persons against advance payment and will close by Aug. 5, 2009.
For registration, please contact tulircphcsa@yahoo.co.in or call 26192026 (10 am – 6 pm, Monday – Friday)

The workshop would give a basic understanding of CSA by discussing the various aspects of the crime and their convergence to form a composite picture. This would lay the foundation on which participants could develop a knowledge base to further work on the subject of child protection either in terms of policy planning and program development or skill enhancement. In the absence of specialized training it would also assist participants to respond to cases of CSA appropriately within their capacities/roles. The workshop outcomes would be an increased awareness of child sexual abuse, its causes, victims, effects, and strategies for prevention, effective responses, and most importantly, an understanding that child sexual abuse is not only a problem for the victim, but is also a problem for the entire community.
