Programme Design
Violence against women is one of the most pervasive forms of human rights violations,
denying women equality, security, dignity, self-worth, and their right to enjoy fundamental freedoms.
It manifests itself in different forms throughout the life cycle of women like gender biased sexselective abortions, female infanticide, domestic violence, child marriage, child prostitution, sexual
harassment at work place, in schools and at home etc. Violence against women is a major public health
problem that has both fatal and non-fatal consequences such as homicide, suicide, maternal mortality
and AIDS-related deaths. For women violence is also a leading cause of injury and disability, as well
as a risk factor leading to depression and anxiety, eating and sleeping disorders, feelings of shame and
guilt, phobia and panic disorders, physical inactivity, poor self-esteem, post-traumatic stress disorder,
psychosomatic disorders, smoking, suicidal behaviour, self-harm and injuring children at times.
Violence has long-term consequences for women and their children, as well as social and economic
costs for all society.
In light of the health, human rights, social and economic consequences of violence against
women, there has been a burgeoning call to address it with a wide range of programmes and policies.
There have been numerous governmental and non-governmental interventions in India to effectively
deal with the problem of distressed women facing any kind of violence. The efforts are directed
towards strengthening of and amendments in existing legislations and developing institutional
mechanisms i.e. National and State Commissions for Women, Crime against Women Cells in police
stations, ‘all women’ police stations etc. One of the recent initiatives is launch of women safety mobile
application ‘Himmat’ by Delhi police. Its other course of action centers around running projects that
provide support services to distressed women through schemes like Swadhar Greh, Short Stay Homes,
Ujjawala, setting up of women help lines and One Stop Centres etc.
NGOs play a pivotal role in implementing these projects to support women in difficult
circumstances. Support services are designed to assist women in being safer and gaining a sense of
empowerment. Distressed women are assisted with safety plans, accessing resources, managing the
effects of abuse and psychological counselling which would give her emotional/mental support. The
counsellor helps the survivor understand various aspects related to her safety, well-being and rights.
She/he explains to her various options available and tries to empower the survivor to take right
decision to overcome the violence situation. The counsellor also ensures that the survivor gets required
support services (legal, health care, shelter etc.) by making need based referrals to the other service
providers like lawyers, doctors and shelter homes etc.
In order to effectively respond to the needs of distressed women the government officials and
non- governmental organizations working for the cause of women need to be acquainted with latest
knowledge about the support services available for distressed women. They need to be equipped with
counselling techniques as the psychosocial support and right kind of need based counselling is
considered important for social rehabilitation of distressed women. A certain level of training and
information is required to familiarize them with the core theories and practices of the trauma approach
in counselling. The more training and supervised practice, the better equipped they will be to respond
to a broad range of violence-related issues. In order to facilitate this process, the Institute proposes to
