An inter- and multidisciplinary approach of tackling domestic violence: European interactive training programme with phased entry plan and universal applicable scenario

The core of the project consists of a European manual for a successful multi-agency approach towards domestic violence. This manual with step-by-step phased entry plan gives local and regional administrations a practical hold to reform their existing approach to tackling domestic violence and convert that approach gradually into a multi-agency approach.

It is precisely this multi-agency approach which will bring success in tackling domestic violence efficiently. This manual is linked to an e-learning module and website, in order to help local co-ordinators to put the phased entry plan into practice.

As part of this European project a school project on respect in relationships has also been developed. Mood City is a serious game, which focuses on the importance of healthy relationships to prevent violence. The game is aimed at 14 and 15 year olds. In 7 lessons the youngsters consider healthy and unhealthy relationships, empowerment in daily conflicts, and acting responsibly with social media.
