Male Survivors Aotearoa provide support for the male survivors of sexual abuse through a network of peer support workers. It’s a challenging and rewarding field, with complex relationships between peer workers and the people they support.
We worked with the team to create a course for the peer workers, based on testimonial evidence, explaining why peer supervision works and how to use this resource.
This is the first of a suite of modules delivered through Talent LMS to help the organisation better support the peer workers and the people they serve.
High-quality video makes a big difference to the professional feel of a course, and Male Survivors Aotearoa needed to create excellent material in a cost-effective way.
We introduced them to Dark Matter, a video studio based in Christchurch where we helped them learn how to shoot head-and-shoulders videos efficiently. The edited the videos included splash screens, and the results look fantastic – but more importantly, they tell the story in an engaging and easily digestible way.
Supporting the supporters
Peer work for such a challenging topic is a difficult job, and to stay safe as you do it well, you need to be well supported. It warms our our hearts to be asked to use our work to benefit the community we live in. Working with an organisation that does so much good in the community with mental health and under-represented people aligns with our purpose and our B Corp mindset.
We are proud to have worked with Male Survivors Aotearoa on this learning opportunity and look forward to developing more modules with them.
