Waterside House is committed to not only working with women and children who have been victimised by an abuser, but also to challenge the structures in society that allow such abuse to take place and to continue.
We do this through collaborating with other agencies, so that they may better understand a woman who has been abused, and so better meet her needs; we work with community groups, particularly with young people, to explore healthy relationships and the dynamics of power.
Our work is interactive and explores issues such as the definition of Domestic Violence and Abuse, dynamics and warning signs of abusive relationships, healthy and unhealthy relationships, effects of abuse on women and children, dealing with disclosures and good practice responses.
Our Healthy Relationships Workshops are available to second level students, and colleges throughout Galway City and County. These workshops are also very interactive and explore abusive relationships in a dating relationship context. We also work with primary schools from time to time.
If you are interested in workshops for your school, college or team, talk to our outreach service team.
