3.2. Supervision

Finally, often only a fine line separates those counselling and/or teaching training classes from those perpetrating violence and attending classes, supervision is an indispensable working condition for volunteers and professionals as well.
In some social services former perpetrators teach present perpetrators. Trainers and counsellors need to reflect one's own aggressive/violent potential as well as they need to question own role models and attitudes toward homosexuals.
There are various forms of supervision from team supervision to single supervision, from attending external expert to collegial supervision. Even though social service providers may be short in budget it cannot be emphasised enough that working with perpetrators always implies supervision for trainers and counsellors.
