Teaching Against Violence
Reassessing the Toolbox

 

Edited by Ines Testoni, Angelika Groterath, Maria Silvia Guglielmin, Michael Wieser

A joint publication by ATGENDER and CEU Press

Angelika Groterath is Professor of Social Psychology and Pedagogy at the University of Darmstadt, Germany.
Maria Silvia Guglielmin is a Psychotherapist at the University of Padua, Italy and Research Coordinator for EMPoWER.

The systematic lockout of women from social and political power is responsible for the phenomenon of double/multiple discrimination, so that in every social category, the status of women is always the lowest. This severe injustice is at the core of the situation of violence which still remains in the world today and poses a real challenge for the future.

Teaching Against Violence deals with gender based violence, paying particular attention to domestic violence, as in this field feminism has tenaciously sought to change the condition of women and, as a result, many international policies have promoted a significant social transformation. The chapters present active techniques that were adopted during the interventions to promote women’s empowerment. The contributions face these issues from various perspectives, present the state of the art research in multiple fields of study and suggest educational best practices that can be used where this problem is particularly severe.
