workshop topics

These are some the topics of our workshops, consultancies, conferences and trainings. However, La Casa Mandarina AC adapts and designs the programs according to the clients own needs, goals and human and economic resources. 

 

  • White supremacy, culture of rape and systems of oppression.

  • Gender violence.

  • Sexual violence: when speaking the truth is not enough.

  • Domestic Violence: why does not she just leave? vs why do men abuse?

  • What is child sexual abuse?: when it is better to die than to live like this. 

  • Trauma, impact and consequences: surviving is not the end point, it is only the beginning.

  • Our experience advocating for survivors of sexual violence: theory to reality.

  • ESCRACHE: Social protest as an alternative for social change.

  • How to support the victims? Hope, movement, healing.

  • ARTIVISM: using the arts for social transformation.

  • Specialized training in sexual and domestic violence: A guide for professionals.

our intervention model

Sexual violence is a social and health problem and everybody needs to get involved. La Casa Mandarina AC works on strengthening schools, universities, non profits, governments, judges, police, businesses and individuals on sexual violence and domestic violence issues at local, regional and international level.

  • Identify how sexual violence intersects with other forms of oppression -racism, homophobia, xenophobia, poverty, homelessness, intimate partner violence, body-shaming - because one issue cannot be prevented without looking at another.

  • Reflect on how sexual violence impacts us and how we individually contribute to perpetuate it.

  • Get the tools to prevent sexual violence in our community and in our own lives. 

Our intervention model is an holistic, sustainable and replicable program, generated from within the community and can be adapted to different contexts. It aims at promoting change in those social norms and beliefs perpetuating oppression, sexual and gender violence by using the arts to create a new culture were survivors are supported instead of shamed. 

  • Train their staff on sexual violence topics (train the trainers).

  • Co-facilitate workshops with their clients in primary prevention.

  • Provide resources for survivors.

  • Support to design their own program.

  • Create community awareness and mobilization.
