When 22 year old Aisha called on a Saturday afternoon she was crying. She had fled from her home because her family were trying to force her into a marriage in Pakistan
This was a very absorbing session which exposed myths & made me realise that HBA is not cultural – it’s criminal!
The day was very informative and thought provoking. Good opportunities to ask questions. Speakers very knowledgeable.
Today has totally opened my eyes to what I have heard about but was totally unaware as to the extent. I feel very ignorant and somewhat guilty because of it. I will hopefully be able to take what I have learned today into my practice as a social worker.
