“Rasgar Silêncios” is a project for empowering survivors of domestic and gender violence through the autobiographical writing methodology (tool used to overcome traumatic situations). It is intended that from the workshops of autobiographical writing, a theater-multimedia show will be created whose dramaturgical material will be texts written by survivors of domestic and gender violence, thus promoting greater community awareness of this problem. A toolkit for victim support staff and other first-line professionals on how to use this methodology during support sessions is planned.
