Project Visions and Goals
The Caritas Specialised Treatment and Prevention Project Against Sexual Violence (PASV) established in 2008 is an innovative and the only voluntary-based project of its kind in Hong Kong to work with people perpetrated or intended to perpetrate sexual violence. They are engaged to take responsibility and included as members in collaborative resistance against sexual abuse.
Building a community respecting sexual consent is the way in preventing sexual abuse. Instead of assuming an absolute pattern of sexual expression or taking power for personal gain, fostering relationship with trust, openness and honesty by referencing to preferred values of each other and our community would better support negotiation of sexual expression in equality.
The PASV project provides telephone and email consultation, individual counselling, treatment and support groups, life-building programmes and family support programmes. We work with service users in exploring impacts of enacting sexual abuse, re-capturing resistance and restituting harms caused by what they acted out without putting the blame onto victims. We work further with them in detaching from stigmatizing labels, reconnecting with valuable identities and working towards respectful relationship.
People perpetrated or intended to perpetrate sexual violence (adolescents and adults) and their family members.
