The handbook, you have in your hands, stems from the experience of experts from five Central and Eastern European organisations: GIC NORA, Peregrina, TRANSFER Slovensko in cooperation with MyMamy, Fundacja Kobieca and Centrul Român de Politici Europene which deal with
women’s issues and gender equality in Poland, Slovakia, Austria, Czech Republic, and Romania. These non-governmental organisations have come together in an Erasmus + project called Let’s Make the Invisible Visible to tackle a very topical issue of women facing discrimination in our
European society.
As experts from the aforementioned organisations know from their everyday practice, formal education methods are not adequate when working with women facing multiple discrimination. Instead, means of empowerment of vulnerable groups of women have to be applied. Thus, participatory coaching methods and drama techniques are looked into and described in detail in this publication and hands-on experience of testing the methods is also provided. Though the handbook has been prepared by experts from the above-mentioned countries, we believe that the content has no boundaries so that adult education professionals from other EU
countries can benefit from the handbook.
The handbook is primarily written for career counsellors, social workers and educators dealing with diverse groups of socially disadvantaged women in the European Union. It is also aimed at those who are interested in the topic in question.
The handbook is purposefully written in a very practical way. It depicts several very concrete methods and techniques that can be used in work with the socially disadvantaged. All these methods and techniques are to empower groups of socially disadvantaged people, in our case multiple discriminated women.
Not only does the handbook describe the concrete methods, but it also reflects on the specific experiences of their application and offers tips on how to use the methods and techniques in a way that benefits the target group of socially disadvantaged women.
