The German Prevention Network “Kein Täter Werden” (“Don’t offend!”) offers a free and confidential treatment option at all of its sites, designed for people who have a sexual preference for children and are seeking therapeutic help. In the context of the therapy, the affected persons receive support so as to prevent sexual offending in the form of both direct contact (hands-on CSA) and indirectly via the consumption or production of child sexual abuse images (child pornography) on the internet.
The goal of the therapy is to prevent sexual offending against minors as well as to prevent the consumption of child sexual abuse images.
The project began at the Institute for Sexology and Sexual Medicine at the Charité University Clinic Berlin in 2005 and now encompasses 11 different sites across Germany, with common quality standards guaranteed by the Prevention Network “Kein Täter werden”. The goal is the establishment of a comprehensive, nationwide therapeutic offering.
The main project officially started on 01/06/2005 and the project is still running.
