»The CD-ROM AVA 2 is a perfect medium for the target groups.
Professional groups like doctors and nurses, the police, judges or
psychologists are often confronted with victims of domestic violence,
but do not know how to tackle the problem, or they do not understand
why women do not "simply" leave their violent partners.
AVA 2 demonstrates, or for the missing parts shall demonstrate, what
women and their children experience in such situations. The recommendations
by AVA 2 are very supportive for the daily work of the professionals....
Recommendation We recommend to finish the prototype of AVA 2 as soon
as possible, as the distribution of this CD-ROM would help to understand
the issue of domestic violence and the impacts on the victims
lives. The dialogues are very instructive. They show how professional
groups could improve their way of handling domestic violence. The
understanding and the knowledge how to deal with this social problem
is fundamental for the prevention of domestic violence in the long
term.... The WAVE co-ordination office fully supports the distribution
of the CD-ROMs AVA 1 and AVA 2. These products are a valuable contribution
to the prevention of domestic violence against women and their children
in Austria and other European countries.«
