The programme aims to develop learners knowledge and skills around responding to these forms of violence, including understanding the roots of forced marriage and ways it intersects with other forms of violence The course will explore research and how different communities are historically affected by forced marriage and 'honour-based' violence, and the importance of effective intervention.

By the end of the two days, learners will have a broader understanding of impact, and will have strengthened their practice in identifying risk factors and how to use strategies to best support and safeguard women and girls experiencing /or at risk of these forms of violence against women and girls.
