Led by Denitsa Kozhuharova, Law & Internet Foundation
Limiting online sexual Exploitation and Abuse Gender based on Underaged boys by Educating experts (LEAGUE) is a project aiming to prevent sexual abuse of boys aged 10-18 online. The project is implemented in two main streams – the first one encompasses the international and national training programmes, while the second one is dedicated to the elaboration of an Internet Platform and Chatbot.
The Victim Identification and Risk Factors workshop is a small group exercise aiming to stimulate participants to open up and share their experience in recognising risk factors of child sexual abuse of boys online. In particular, how to identify signs of abuse and how to detect the boys’ reaction to abuse. Participants will be divided into groups of 4-5 persons, where each group will be handed with exercise cards on the following topics:
- Individual factors
- Family factors
- Behavioural signs
- Coping and response mechanisms as a reaction to the abuse
- What recognising the factors allows us to do
Each group will deliberate for 30-40 minutes and then share the conclusions with the whole workshop, while the moderator of the session will be working on a canvas noting the key results. The presentation of the conclusions will allow for a group discussion, exchange of ideas, good practices and working methods, while the moderator will summarise at the end. The workshop will conclude by inviting each participant to choose a dixit card to evaluate their experience, based on the respective visual of the card, participants’ feeling of the day and obtained know-how.
