Abstract

MORENO-MANSO, Juan M.; GARCIA-BAAMONDE, Elena; BLAZQUEZ-ALONSO, Macarena  and  POZUECO-ROMERO, José M.. Application of a child abuse prevention programme in an educational context. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.30, n.3, pp.1014-1024. ISSN 1695-2294.  http://dx.doi.org/10.6018/analesps.30.3.154231.

This study analyses the effectiveness of a child abuse prevention programme in an educational context. The proposal for action is based on the use of stories as an instrument of primary prevention. The programme aims to improve a child's capacity to face potentially threatening situations and was applied in 10 primary schools of Extremadura (Spain) to 317 pupils aged 9 and 10 years old. There were 12 sessions whose aim was for the children to gain an awareness of abuse, identify situations of abuse and learn strategies to face them. This was done through the use of tutorials and by linking the programme to the aims of the pupils' educational stage. The evaluation of the programme shows that the pupils in the experimental group resolved the situations with increasing skill, confidence and determination; and that they could see more clearly where to look for help in terms of protection measures. The tutors evaluated the programme positively, considering the contents useful for prevention.

Keywords : child abuse; primary prevention; programme; education context.
