Mijas Town Hall has launched a new course on detection and prevention of sexual violence in young people and minorsa training in which up to a hundred professionals from areas such as education, health, Social Services, security forces and bodies and other agents involved can participate, according to what the councilor for the area, Natalia Martínez, has advanced this Friday.
“We continue with our training plan for professionals who deal with sexist violence, and on this occasion, it is a course online in which we are going to train about 100 professionals from various areas that care for victims, with the aim that they have tools that allow them to detect and intervene in these cases”, said the mayor.
Martínez added that the training will have 120 hours, divided into four modules “where the origin of sexual violence will be discussed, the legislation we currently have against sexual freedom, the gender perspective in sexual violence, and how to intervene in these cases.”
It should be remembered that this new course is financed with the State Pact against gender violence, “a subsidy that the town councils receive from the Ministry to make public policies on equality and the prevention of sexist violence, and which this year has allocated some 100,000 euros to Mijas”, added the mayor, pointing out that “precisely this training is one of the pillars of this grant in our town together with coeducation in the classrooms”.
“Once let’s have 100 participantsthe course that has an accredited diploma will be able to start”, specified Martínez, who has highlighted how the Equality and Diversity area of Mijas has already launched other training courses on this subject, such as attention and prevention of gender violence in the elderly or affective-sexual care and whose vacancies “have all been filled, achieving a 60% pass rate”.
