This resource brings together and adds to existing resources by providing tips on effective strategies and ways of overcoming resistance, and other more extreme forms of backlash.

Anyone working to prevent or respond to family and gender-based violence through social change will experience resistance. This resource brings together and adds to existing work in supporting practitioners to understand and respond to resistance and backlash.

Working together and sharing lessons is essential in doing this effectively, and maintaining practitioner wellbeing.

This resource is informed by a panel discussion at the Safe and Equal Members’ Forum on responding to backlash and resistance across the continuum, held in July, 2023. Access more resources and information about our resistance training here.
