• Young People informed about Types of Violence… Awareness Event about violence against women held at Near East College


    Near East College Psychological Counseling and Guidance Unit and Women’s Support to Life Association (KAYAD), in line with the scope of the month of International Struggle against Violence against Women and Solidarity, held an awareness event for the 11th year students.

    Mine Atlı, Project Coordinator and Attorney at Law participated in the event organized to raise awareness against violence against women. In her speech, she drew attention to gender inequality and emphasized that the main reason underlying the inequality was ignored through domestic violence and similar issues, and drew attention to these problems and the victimization experienced by women. Atlı gave information about the concepts of domestic violence, physical, economic and psychological violence and also gave information about the types, causes, and consequences of the violence.

    After the speech that students listened to with interest, empathy empowering activity was held with the workshop on Safe Relationship and Flirt Violence.

    Children growing under violence may have emotional commitment problems…
    Rasiha Altunkaya, Head of Psychological Counseling and Guidance Unit of the Near East College, said: “We think that we have raised the awareness that we want to create against the prevention of violence against women. Growing up in an environment of violence, children can have emotional attachment to their caregivers, their mothers and siblings. School-age children may experience different psychological problems such as depression, anxiety and fear, and may display problematic behaviors such as violence against their peers. We believe that the activity we realize with this awareness is very valuable and beneficial.”
