Germany- “Don’t Offend” therapy model

This project is a free of charge treatment offer which underlies confidentiality*. It is directed at people seeking therapeutic help because they feel sexually attracted to children and adolescents and/or who use child abusive images. Within the course of therapy, the person concerned is offered support concerning the prevention of child sexual abuse in the form of hands-on contact or ‘online abuse’ by using or producing child abusive image material. *There is no mandatory report law in Germany

For taking part in this project one should be aware of one’s own problem regarding sexual impulses toward children and should also be self-motivated to make use of therapeutic support. Website

If someone had told me that Germany would be the first country to be proactive about preventing offenses before they occur or are discovered by law enforcement, I wouldn’t have believed the person. This is an incredible step in the right direction for actually reducing and/or preventing offenses or even providing an opportunity for offenders to seek out help which hopefully spares them from legal trouble. Hopefully the model proves successful and other countries think about trying something similar. Of course it would not work in the United States as current state and federal law is written regarding reporting requirements.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
