Objective of the Project

In the Czech Republic, there are currently no special educational materials or methodologies for the work with deaf youth in the field of domestic violence. Yet people with a hearing impairment are in danger of domestic violence just like the ones without it, plus they have to deal with extra difficulties arising from their handicap, especially with the language barrier in both oral and written communication and with an insufficient orientation in reality and information. The project’s goal is the prevention of domestic violence in the community of deaf youth with the use of strategies and materials with respect specific communication needs of the deaf (communication in sign language, dramatic methods, therapy and education through film). The project’s content is an intensive extracurricular work with a group of deaf girls in two Czech cities and a consequential creation of educational materials: methodologies and a short film, which the girls will take part in.
