The number of cases of sexual violence against and among children and young people has risen at an alarming rate in recent years. This development is particularly true for the area of sexual violence in the digital space. Adult perpetrators gain easy access to children and young people through the increasing and earlier use of digital media. At the same time, these children and young people are increasingly acting as perpetrators themselves in the virtual space - either knowingly or, in most cases, without being directly aware of it. As a result, professionals working with children and adolescents are also increasingly confronted with the issue.

This presentation will give a brief overview of current figures, data and facts on the topic of sexual violence against children and adolescents in the digital space and, in addition to brief insights from our practice as a specialized counseling center, will also provide a space for questions and an outlook on what we as professionals will need in the future to deal with this issue.
