Virtual girl called 'Sweetie' used to stop webcam child sex tourism

"To show how unrestrained child predators can act but also to show how easy it is to track them down the Dutch child rights organisation put itself in the shoes of a 10–year–old Filipino girl. With an innovative technology the virtual character Sweetie was created to be controlled by Terre des Hommes researchers. From a remote building in Amsterdam the researchers operated in public chat rooms. In a very short period, over 20,000 predators from around the world approached the virtual 10– year–old, asking for webcam sex performances. While the adults interacted with the virtual girl, the researchers gathered information about them through social media to uncover their identities. With this evidence Terre des Hommes Netherlands is pushing all governments to adopt proactive investigation policies, with a world wide petition, starting today."

ANAR Foundation: targeting children through lenticular imagery

"ANAR Foundation manages in Spain the European unique phone number 116 111, to attend children and teenagers under a risk situation. On this telephone number, only for minors, they can find the help they need in a totally anonymous and confidential way. But, how can we get our message to a child abuse victim, even when they are accompanied by an adult their aggressor?

Knowing the average height for adults and children under 10, we have created two different messages. Using an outdoor lenticular we show adults an awareness message, while children see a message where we offer them our help and show them the telephone number. A message only for children."

Counselling Through Online Visual Tools

"The Online counselling: Client outcomes (OcCo) is a project developed at Queensland University of Technology (QUT), and funded by the Australian Research Council (2004–2005). The project involves the research and creation of counselling framework in the form of online visual counselling tools. The framework has been developed at QUT and introduces a number of unique components that changes the way online counselling is conducted in an online environment. The tools have been designed to be client–centred, strengths–based, narrative and solution–focussed. One feature of the tools is their ability to enable young people to communicate their concerns to a counsellor. The tools allows them to present their concerns in a visual manner using interactive sociograms (relationship mapping), genograms (family mapping) and life events charts (self mapping). This brings one of the fundamental principles of traditional counselling – exploration of relationships – into the graphical online environment."
