Beyond Digital Violence

take action against cyber sexual violence

Welcome to the project website of ByeDV

Beyond digital Violence. Capacity Building for Relevant Professionals Working with Children and Young People Who Have Experienced Sexualised Violence Using Digital Media – ByeDV – is a Project of SRH University Heidelberg and DGfPI e.V.

ByeDV aims to work with practitioners and educators to facilitate the implementation of empirically developed approaches for addressing mediatised sexualised violence against children and adolescents. In parallel, a formative evaluation will be used to derive quality criteria to support the further implementation of the recommendations in other counselling practices.

The quality criteria will also seek to address professionals from other European countries working in the field of sexualised violence against children and adolescents. The project team plans to use this website to keep the public thoroughly informed about ByeDV.

If you have any questions, suggestions, or are interested in networking, we look forward to hearing from you. Write to us at byedv.hshd@srh.de.
