Prevention of Sexual Abuse Against Children


1. Preventive Rules


2. Protection Concepts

There is now sufficient literature on protection and child protection concepts. Austria signed the Children’s Rights Convention (CRC) of 1989, thereby guaranteeing children, among other things, the right to a non-violent upbringing and a life without sexual abuse (Article 5).

KIMI understands a protection concept as a three-part plan of how to deal with situations of abuse. This consists of the following elements:

  • Prevention concept
  • Intervention plan
  • Processing program
KIMI will be happy to help you create such a concept.
