Description of the project. Through participation in prevention training children are led to recognize potentially critical situations, resist the “seductive” conduct and possibly refer to their significant figures, according to the well-known 3R-paradigm Recognize resist reporting. The name “looks like a game…” It has a double valence. Firstly, it is known that sexual abuse behaviors are proposed and “masked” to the child in the form of a game. The game, in fact, is the preferred means of priming: through it the pedophile captures the trust and affection of the child making it available to keep the secret. Second “looks like a game…” It is evocative of the methodology of the prevention protocol: situations and behaviors of abuse are presented to children in the form of simulated play. The program uses, that is, the same strategy of approach as the pedophile, channeling the attention and curiosity of the child in the experimentation and detection of the warning signs that are presented during the game. The program takes place in school and involves the class group.
The children “play” with the team composed of two psychologists and an educator who simulates the behavior of solicit and seduction of the pedophile. The Games resume the two most frequent risky situations: the first, in which a “stranger” comes into contact with the children and tries to lure them; The second, in which a “familiar figure” puts into effect seductive behaviors. The games are repeated twice. The first Test gives us guidance on the degree of risk perception of children in relation to the situation that is proposed to them. In the second Test we orient the children towards behaviors and evaluations consistent with the purpose of the simulation, rewarding, with positive scores, the safe behaviors.
