2PS speeches at National Prevention Days in Czech Republic
During the National Prevention Days in Czech Republic, our expert Marek Navrátil from The National Institute of Mental Health (NUDZ) presented the Protect & Prevent through Support project during a dedicated thematic speech.
The event, sponsored by the Czech Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, focused on prevention of crime, safety and prevention of risky behaviour of children and young people.
The 2PS project is contributing to the prevention domain by better understanding what leads to harmful behaviour, informing and educating people who fear they might offend against children about the support services and rehabilitation options they have and sharing the best practices for guidance, therapy and treatment methods with the relevant stakeholders.
The National Prevention Days represented an occasion to speak up about prevention measures to stop child sexual abuse and exploitation. In addition, the event was the occasion to meet sector operators, scientists and researchers. The involvement of these stakeholders is precious to present examples of good practices from regions and municipalities.
Specifically, our project represents an ongoing good practice in the domain of prevention of child sexual abuse and exploitation. Indeed, it brings a paradigm shift in preventing abuse before it occurs.
The strength of the 2PS project relies also in a complementary composition of the research team. In fact, by bringing together the relevant stakeholders who play a fundamental role in tackling CSAE, the approach is multilateral and combined. The solutions we are developing, in constant dialogue with external experts such as our Advisory Board and different stakeholder consultations organised by the project, mirrors this approach.
