The online symposium "Social Media - Challenges for Institutional Protection Processes" takes place on the occasion of the European Day for the Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse. The online symposium is embedded in an entire week of action for the protection of children from November 18, 2022 to November 25, 2022.
The expert day is intended to provide an overview of possible phenomena in the area of sexual violence that are circulating on the Internet. It will address options for action for professionals, how they should intervene in an emergency and, in the best case, how they should deal with the issue preventively. Programs, projects and materials that can effectively support the process in institutions and associations will be presented.
The target group for the interdisciplinary symposium are employees in schools, day care centers for children, day care centers for children, institutions and services of educational assistance, youth associations and clubs, full-time and voluntary workers in sports, representatives of religious communities as well as interested parties from politics, science, health, police and justice.
