“Prevention of sexual violence against youth”

The processes of psychological intervention with young people who committed sexual assaults were initially constructed by using existing theories and practices designed for adults, not considering that young people who committed sexual crimes could be different from adult offenders. Moreover, for several years, little consideration was given to the differences that might exist between young people who committed sex crimes and those who committed non-sexual crimes. For some decades now, a significant body of technical knowledge about this population -adolescents- has been developed, both at the level of primary and secondary prevention. These intervention strategies will be addressed by highlighting the results obtained so far in several studies conducted in Portugal.
