Name of the project: You Do Not Have to Be Alone! Call, Write or Visit Us
Name of the organization: Dětské krizové centrum, z.ú.
Torture and sexual abuse of children poses a serious socio-pathological phenomenon affecting a large number of children. It requires professional interdisciplinary approach with emphasis on the individual needs of each child and his/her dysfunctional family. An emerging theme of cyberbullying and online abuse is also addressed by this project. The primary goal of crisis assistance to the child lies in ensuring his/her protection from further attacks and from punishment from breaking silence. The current network of crisis assistance centers in the Czech Republic is insufficient and the overall awareness of children and their ability to react to the option of crisis assistance is also lacking.
