6 17Stop And Protect This workshop will consider media based methods for educating young people and vulnerable children about abuse, and consequently encourage reflection amongst workshop attendees about what they might do to identify and support those who may be at risk or otherwise vulnerable in schools and colleges. Annette Crisp | Diane Wensley De Montfort University 18A Private Matter - Accessing Counselling Support, Issues Of Visibility And Engagement This workshop will consider issues of engagement and accessibility with longer term counselling and support for survivors of sexual violence and domestic violence and why for many this remains a truly private matter.(can end here if needs be for programme) Whilst research is limited in this area, it might be assumed that a significant number of survivors turn to private counselling provisions for support and remain reluctant to engage with more "visible" community based services. This raises a number of important dilemmas in relation to an unfair and unequal access to such support based on financial status and the future risk and safety of victims/survivors. But it also raises an interesting debate about how the efforts to place such concerns in the public domain with increased recognition and visibility, may actually have a reverse impact on some victims/survivors, increasing their reticence to engage with other community based services. Myira Khan is able to speak from her personal experiences as a counsellor who has worked both in the voluntary and private sector. Myira Khan Counsellor Workshop Information
