It will be live until April 12th.  So far, nearly 300 survivors across the country have completed it. The survey can be accessed on forms a critical part of RCNI’s new comprehensive programme of work called Counselling Survivors in an On & Offline World aimed at ensuring that there is standardised and specialist counselling for survivors of sexual violence and harassment fit for a post-pandemic world in Ireland. RCNI believes that remote trauma counselling is here to stay as part of a new hybrid model of on and off-line clinical support for survivors.The survey comes at a poignant moment in time also with the focus on the safety of women and girls following the murder of Sarah Everard in London.“The survivors’ survey we are launching this week is central to our understanding of how counselling is working, or not working, for them, particularly over this past tumultuous year,” said Dr Michelle Walshe, who is the RCNI Clinical Programme Lead on the global leading project.“We are asking survivors and people who are supporting them to fill out our easy to use survey. It will take less than 10 minutes, yet those 10 minutes will feed into the development of training that can ensure that counselling in this country is completely fit for purpose for the new hybrid world we are entering into,” she continued“It also means that survivors will have real choice in how they want to receive counselling in the future. As our survey to date has shown, there are huge advantages to on-line counselling, but there are things we have to address and know more about to be certain that it is working.”The survivors’ survey follows a major survey of over 750 counsellors and psychotherapists throughout Ireland, and with the collaboration of all the main organisations providing counselling and training.It found that 79% of respondents said that it was important to have specialism in sexual violence. However, less than half said that their knowledge of misogyny and gender roles was good, indicating a gap between understanding of root causes of sexual violence and the desire for specialism and standardisation in training.The programme emerged from the experience of the initial Covid-19 lockdown a year ago when Rape Crisis Centres like the one in Limerick had to be evacuated and when trauma counselling services had to move on-line, almost overnight.The initiative is supported by Rethink Ireland, through the Innovate Together Fund, a collaboration between Rethink Ireland the Department of Rural and Community Development. The Fund supports charities’ innovative responses to the Covid-19 crisis that will provide lasting change.The survey is available here.

first_img  Print This Post Sign up for DS News Daily A slowdown in 2019 will create a healthier housing market going forward, says Tendayi Kapfidze, Chief Economist at LendingTree. In an article titled “What We Expect in Housing and the Economy in 2019,” he pointed out that while housing will slow down next year, it is not a cause for significant concern. Kapfidze is optimistic about the medium- and long-term prospects for housing “as the demographics are going to continue to support demand. With a slower price appreciation, incomes have a chance to catch up. With slower sales, inventory has an opportunity to normalize,” he said. LendingTree does not anticipate a recession this year on account of a strong labor market that will form the basis for growth. However, political tensions will add to uncertainty and volatility which may result in a loss of confidence and suppressed business and consumer spending. LendingTree’s forecast expects an increase in mortgage rates to as high as 5.5 percent in 2019. Home sales will contract marginally by 2 percent to 5 percent on an annual basis. Growth in home prices will moderate to about 3 percent year over year, with some localized decline. However, this will not lead to a national decline, the forecast indicated. It also pointed out that higher rates will affect homebuyer confidence. Growth concerns, driven by political risk and slower global growth could hold mortgage rates below 5 percent—breathing new life into the housing market, according to Kapfidze. Speaking of home appreciation, prices are projected to drop regardless of what happens to interest rates and sales. Home price growth will moderate to about 3 percent year over year. Wage growth is likely to reach 3.5 percent year over year. Abnormally low unemployment can cause a spike in inflation if wage growth approaches 4 percent, the article stated. Speaking of FED rate hikes, it indicated the likelihood of FOMC raising funds rate twice in 2019.The consumer debt of 2018 stands at $14 trillion and will continue to rise this year. “However delinquency rates are low. Although lenders may somewhat tighten underwriting standards, a strong labor market and wage growth will keep delinquencies low and encourage lending and borrowing,” Kapfidze said. The unemployment rate is expected to fall to 3.4 percent by year-end from 3.7 percent recorded at the end of 2018. GDP will drop to 2.5 percent in 2019 from 3 percent in 2018. in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News, Servicing Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Is the Housing Market Recession Ready?

first_imgProperty confidence in Queensland is at its highest level since 2015.CONFIDENCE has hit record levels in the property sector, with Queensland at its highest level since the mining boom, the latest industry survey has found.The ANZ/Property Council Survey said there was growing confidence in Queensland amid positive expectations of economic growth in the state led by infrastructure projects such as the Cross River Rail.Property Council Queensland executive director Chris Mountford said sentiment had jumped by 13 index points since June 2017.Queensland saw its sentiment index go from 127 points in June last year, to 128 in September, 134 in December, 132 in March and now 139. It was the highest point the sector had reached since March 2015. Property Council Queensland executive director Chris Mountford is upbeat about jobs and their impact on property. Picture: Mark Calleja.ANZ senior economist Daniel Gradwell said there were improvements across all states and territories with price expectations for housing also stabilising everywhere except New South Wales.“It’s not just the fact that overall confidence rose to the highest level on record; it’s the way that the improvement is being seen across all regions of the country.”He said the mining areas including Queensland posted further increases in sentiment in the June quarter.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus19 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market19 hours ago“This provides additional evidence that the decline in the mining sector is well and truly past the worst.”Mr Mountford expected significant boosts to the Queensland economy off infrastructure.“The Cross River Rail is expected to create 1,500 jobs annually during the construction phase, which will provide a significant boost to the Queensland economy.“The opportunities created by additional jobs facilitates interstate migration. Queensland has been expecting increased migration for years, due to our lower property prices and fantastic amenities- now we have the job growth to support it.” The Property Council has called for a review of state taxation of the sector.But while it was “a very exciting time for Queensland” Mr Mountford warned that sentiment in the state was still the lowest in the country.“This shows the industry remains concerned about the direct impacts of the Queensland Government’s land tax increases,” he said.“The unexpected rises in Land Tax and Additional Foreign Acquirer Duty were announced during the election campaign in late 2017, and are due to take effect from July 1 this year.“Imposing further taxes on an industry that already pays 53.7 per cent of government taxes, fees and charges, is bound to hurt confidence.”He renewed a call for the Queensland Government to review the property tax structure in the state.Nationally, the Australian sentiment index for the June Quarter 2018 was at 143 points, a 5.7 per cent rise nationally.last_img read more

Each of the last five Six Nations rugby titles have been won by either Ireland (3) or England (2), but whoever tastes defeat at the Aviva Stadium is likely to have an uphill climb to lift the trophy again in 2019.And Jones will be unable to call on either Worcester Warriors outside centre Te’o or Wasps lock Shields, with side strains forcing them to be omitted from the 25-man squad.

first_img Monaco striker Radamel Falcao 1 Liverpool’s hopes of signing Monaco striker Radamel Falcao could be wrecked by Juventus.Brendan Rodgers is interested in the Colombia striker, who has recovered from the knee injury that kept him out of the World Cup during the summer, as a replacement for Luis Suarez, who joined Barcelona for £75million earlier this summer.Real Madrid are also thought to be interested but Juventus could pip them both to the post by agreeing to take the frontman on an initial loan with a view to a permanent move, should it prove successful.The only stumbling block in the Serie A champions’ plans is Fernando Llorente, who they are trying to offload.Valencia are keen on the Spanish striker and if they firm up their inquiries then Juve could steal Falcao from under the Anfield club’s noses.last_img read more
