Six Case Workers from Femili PNG, along with our Case Work Manager and Operations Manager, completed three days of intensive training on Case Management and Self-Care last week (16-18 August 2017) in Lae.
The objective of the training was to upskill Femili PNG’s Case Workers, improve their knowledge on Family and Sexual Violence and other forms of exploitation of children, women and men, and to handle issues of survivors properly.
Other highlights of the training included discussion on Case Management, related laws and Trauma Informed Care. It was also a good opportunity for the participants to clarify their knowledge on the salient provisions of the laws including the Lukautim Pikinini Act (LPA), Family Protection Act (FPA) and Criminal Code.
Femili PNG Case Management Technical Expert, Mellanie Olano facilitated the training with assistance from CEO Daisy Plana, In-house Laywer Anna Raymond and Training Coordinator Konnie Yoifa.
The training was very insightful, especially for the Case Workers as it will help them to assist survivors and advocate for their rights.
“Educating our own team, enhancing and equipping their skills would lead to a cost-effective outcome for the benefit of the survivors,” said Ms Olano.
“We in Femili PNG, we believe that change can happen, and this can begin with us,” she concluded.
