Child abuse (Sexual)

Summary

The Council of Europe warns that "One in five children" will fall victim of sexual violence, trying to disseminate and reinforce the implementation of the Council of Europe Treaty (Lanzarote Convention) for the protection of children against sexual exploitation and sexual abuse.

For the prevention of particularly heinous phenomenon that has long-term consequences, which affect many aspects of the child's life and psychosocial status, schools should develop a systematic approach that includes action at multiple levels: awareness of teachers, advisory, cooperation with parents and students. To reach the detailed content of the seminar, we utilized all the Council of Europe's information about "One in Five" campaign, the relevant European legislation regarding the protection of children against sexual abuse and preventive actions implemented at European and international level.
