CETA is based on the fact that most evidence-based mental health treatments (EBTs) (most of which are cognitive behavioral) are made of similar elements or components. For example, most evidence-based treatments for a variety of disorders all contain psychoeducation, and cognitive coping. The idea is to train counselors in a range of different components that are similar across EBTs, and then teach them how to choose different orders and “dose” of components based on a client’s presenting problems.

In spite of economic opportunities for advancement, women workers in the global supply chain are still at risk of different forms of harassment in the workplace: between 40 to 50 per cent of women experience some form of harassment at work1. Women, most of them young and migrants from rural areas, are prone to workplace violence because of an interplay of social norms which condone violence against women (VAW), unbalanced power dynamics between managers and workers, inequitable gender attitudes, and poor awareness and execution on legal and compliance requirements.

Promoting respectful relationships and equitable communities

The community dialogues are a tool that Gender Champions can use to facilitate a series of reflections and dialogues. Their ultimate aim is for individuals to be transformed. This tool will be most effective if used in the context of the Transforming Masculinities approach. The discussion themes are tailored for both women’s and men’s groups, with the expectation they will come together for a joint reflection in Week 6. The themes are intended to prompt personal reflection and deepen understanding of the topics; the Gender Champions’ (facilitators’) knowledge will also feed into this process.

Right to Play Pakistan designed and implemented a school-based programme that used sport and play to reduce peer violence and corporal punishment, improve mental health, and change social norms in support of gender equality and non-violence. The programme reached 8,000 children in 40 public schools, with an equal number of boys and girls benefitting. It was rigorously evaluated by Aga Khan University.

This Evidence Brief presents the findings from the end-line evaluation. These show significant reductions in both boys’ and girls’ perpetration and victimisation of peer violence, experience of corporal punishment both at home and in school, and witnessing of acts of domestic violence. Levels of depression and patriarchal gender attitudes have also improved. The positive results demonstrate the potential of investing in sports and play based learning in schools and communities to prevent violence.
