Models of Organization of Assistance for Child Victim of Violence (Foreign Experience)

95

Abstract

The number of child victims of criminal violence and abuse in Russia is increasing every year. The investigation of crimes committed against minors, as well as the provision of assistance to such children, requires the participation of different departments and specialists of different professions. The organization of their effective interaction requires management and coordination. The article presents the experience of foreign countries, demonstrating the positive results of the work of centers that coordinate interdepartmental and multi-professional activities. One successful organizational form is the Barnahus model. A comparative analysis of the implementation of this model in the countries of Scandinavia and Finland shows that the leading role in it can be played by the police, social or medical services. Funding can be state or municipal, i.e. implementation options may vary, but they are united by the idea of performing all functions in one institution operating to common standards of performance. Familiarity with this practice is useful for the productive organization of interdepartmental interaction when working with a child who is a victim of violence in Russia.
