Course Description

Sexual violence perpetrated on minors, frequently incestuous and largely condemned today, questions the anthropological and sociological foundations of our society. In a context often animated by excessive passion and renewed for example by the development of cyber crime, the different management (therapeutic, judicial, educational and social) of the perpetrators and victims necessitates a real reflection by professionals on the delicate handling of their respective roles.

Through its presentations by anthropologists, sociologists, physicians, psychiatrists and psychologists, this training seeks to promote discussions and multidisciplinary professional exchanges to better discern the legal, educational and therapeutic responses which are best suited to these complex and singular situations. A foreign experience in managing victims will also be presented.
