Handbook for Professionals for the awareness raising campaign “You are not the only one. You are not alone!” "Δεν είσαι μόνη! Δεν είσαι η μόνη!"
The manual is available in electronic and online format. It aims to provide guidelines to professionals working in counselling centers for abused women as well as to other professionals that may be in contact with abused women.
Even though the Manual is not exclusively addressing domestic violence a great part of it is devoted to this type of abuse. More specifically, 12 chapters (2.1-2.5, 5.4, 5.6, 6.4, 7.3, 11.1, 11.4, Annex 1) address exclusively domestic violence, and there is also mentioning to it to other chapters including also other types of GBV.
