This training course (prepared in French and delivered in English) was created in July 2012 in Manilla, following a request from the social support team of the EnFaNCE Foundation, (which was then a partner of Inter Aide and is now ATIA’s partner in Manilla), to respond to their highly relevant questions:
– What is violence?
– What are the causes of violence?
– What factors trigger violence?
– Is it possible to halt violence? How? Why is it so difficult?
– Does shouting at children or slapping them count as violence?
– Does making fun of someone count as violence?
– What help can be given to families?
While suggesting answers to these questions, this guide provides a wider view of violence, setting the individual in their life environment to illustrate the fact that the act of violence takes place in an environment which is violent or which is experienced as such: either the current environment of the person or their earlier environment – the family environment of their childhood, for example, in the case of someone who was abused – that the person projects onto their current environment.
