Preventive action in the field of sexual abuse in primary school


In the diploma thesis I deal with preventive action in the field of sexual abuse in the elementary school. In the theoretical part I define what sexual violence is and what sexual abuses are. Then I describe the victims of sexual abuses as well as the perpetrators committing these crimes. Due to the fact, that the most sexual abuses happen in the domestic environment, i.e. by the persons a child trusts and are close to him, I pay special attention to the development of sexual violence in the family. I also mention the topic of sexual violence and abuses through World Wide Web and how to protect the children against that. Later in the theoretical part I present current condition in the field of prevention against sexual abuses; I list preventive advices the parents should give to children when they want to protect them against such violence. At the same time I explain why the children do not speak about the sexual abuse. Therefore, it is good to know the symptoms that show that a child was a victim of sexual abuse. Due to the fact that I focus on preventive action in the elementary school in the thesis, the chapter in the conclusion of the theoretical part is intended to including preventive activities into the curriculum of the elementary school. I define also the role of educational and other workers in preventing and discovering sexual abuses as well as the cooperation with the other institutions – police, Social Work Centre, external organizations. In the empirical part that is composed of two interviews as well as the exercise of the educational program with the topic of sexual abuses for the pupils of the sixth grade I research what the current condition regarding the prevention in the school environment in the field of sexual abuses is and what the possibilities of improvements regarding the preventive work are. I was also interested in what the role of the police in preventing sexual abuses is and what the role of educational workers is in a team of experts, who prevent sexual abuses
