This comprehensive approach to gender training in development encompasses work on gender awareness-raising and gender analysis at the individual, community and global level. An important reference source for development agency trainers and academics. This is a large, comprehensive manual that acknowledges the work of the gender trainers throughout the world who have developed the material. It contains everything you need to know to organise, run and evaluate group workshops on gender, with many practical exercises. Important concepts are explained at the beginning, such as defining gender and its relation to other issues. There are excellent guidelines for the facilitators: key issues, the seven steps of planning and running the training, are all explained. There is also guidance in preparing further case studies. The manual is made up of activities, handouts and facilitator's notes on the following broad areas: * Training techniques - suggests and explains a wide range of ideas and methods such as icebreakers and exercises to use when participants are tired or to encourage group feeling; * Getting started - looks at introductions, expectations, and sharing experience; * Gender awareness - building gender- and self-awareness, analysing roles and needs; * Gender and global issues - conflict, environment and culture; * Working with women and men- listening and working to include women; * Communicating gender, strategies for change and evaluation - images of gender, introducing gender to our organisations and creative evaluation. The book is written in a straightforward way. There is a guide to the manual to help readers find their way around. The index gives the title of the activity, timing and details of handouts needed. Handouts can be copied and there is a reference section of addresses, resources and further reading. The book is aimed at NGO staff with some experience in running workshops, and experienced gender trainers.
