During the 2006 there were three trainings conducted in Ukraine. The first one carried out in April and May was organized for approximately 60 representatives of social services for families, children and youth, workers of the services for the affairs of minors and the police. It was held in two regions of Ukraine: Cherkasy and Rivne. As the topic of the training was "Preventing Family Violence and Working with Crisis Families", the participants learned how to identify children who suffered from abuse and how to work with crisis families. They also studied in detail what to do and which institution to apply if a child abuse case became known. About 90% of the participants agreed that the topic of the training is extremely important for Ukrainian society.
