The entire therapy in the Prevention Network "Kein Täter werden" (Meaning: Don’t offend) is confidential and free of charge. The goal of the therapy is to overcome problems in connection with the handling of a sexual preference. Especially important in this regard is the ability to control one’s behavior in such a way that sexual offenses against children are completely avoided.
In the course of the therapy, the participants therefore acquire
• an appropriate perception and evaluation of their sexual desires and needs
• the ability to identify and cope with dangerous developments
• strategies for preventing sexual offending
The therapy takes place weekly in a group setting, as well as individually and with the participation of partners or relatives when necessary. The treatment follows a structured therapy plan, yet takes into account the individual needs of and in consultation with the participants. It integrates psychotherapeutic, sexological, medical, and psychological approaches as well as the option of additional pharmaceutical support.
