“Strengthening Ministry of Social Policy’s Capacity to Work with Children-Domestic Violence Perpetrators” Project
In the framework of its Programme “Human Security”, the OSCE Project Co-ordinator in Ukraine (PCU) together with the Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine implements the Project “Strengthening Ministry of Social Policy’s Capacity to Work with Children-Domestic Violence Perpetrators”. The Project addresses the need of the Ministry of Social Policy in developing the Standard Programme for children-domestic violence perpetrators and building capacity of local staff to launch its implementation.
Since 2009, the PCU has been providing support to the Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine in developing an innovative approach for working with domestic violence perpetrators. According to the Law of Ukraine “On Prevention and Combating Domestic Violence” and other Ukraine’s international commitments in this area, local authorities and local state administrations have to organize and implement the programmes for domestic violence perpetrators, including programmes for children-abusers.
With new anti-DV Law adopted, at the request of the Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine, in 2018-2020, the PCU supported its implementation, in particular in the area of building capacity of local psychologists and social service providers from all regions of Ukraine to implement corrective programme for domestic violence perpetrators. At the same time, there is a need to implement corrective work with children-domestic violence perpetrators. In 2021, following these developments aimed at prevention and combating domestic violence, the PCU will hire national experts to develop and pilot the standard corrective programme for children-domestic violence perpetrators, taking into account age-specific psychological and normative aspects of corrective work with children.
