Working with Young Women and Girls Affected by Gangs and County Lines
About the CPD course
Attendees learn about Abianda - our model of practice; values and services. We provide an introduction to Solution Focused Practice; a cornerstone of our approach to working with young women. We explore and challenge the stereotypes and myths around young women; gangs and county lines; and facilitate a critical discussion of the term "gang". We address the risks young women face; and the barriers to them accessing support. We share the ideal knowledge; skills and attitudes young women tell us they want professionals to have.
Abianda is a social enterprise that works with young women affected by gangs, and the professionals that work with them. We offer one-to-one, group work and employment opportunities to gang-affected young women. And for professionals we offer training and support so they can work more confidently and effectively with gang-affected young women.
