Free information, support and referrals for women

Women-Sensitive Practice Training

Building on 30 years of women-specific service development and delivery, our Women-Sensitive Practice Training Program explores:

  • What it means to work with women within a feminist framework
  • Understanding and exploring how to meet the particular needs of sub-groups
  • Implementing a women-sensitive model of practice
  • Development and application of micro-skills such as reflective listening

We train other support services and telephone support services in women-sensitive practice using our well-established model. These training processes support workers and help them to open up calls in a way that empowers women. This course is suitable for anyone who supports women as part of their working life and can be tailored to suit specific organisational needs.
