Our self-paced courses take you on an introspective journey. You examine your values, biases, and experiences and how these may impact your violence prevention work. The courses allow you to gain insights into the social, cultural, and structural factors contributing to violence, as well as enhance your skills in:
- Questioning assumptions
- Analysing evidence
- Challenging biases for informed decisions in violence prevention work
Self-paced courses allow you to start and complete a course on your own time. You can also engage with course facilitators through live sessions and discussion forums.
