MAPs Wanted for Study on Messaging for Support Platform

Participants are needed for a new study conducted by a team of researchers from Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, the University of Bergen, and Stop it Now. The study is part of Prevent and Protect through Support (2PS), an EU funded project aimed at preventing child sexual abuse and exploitation, including through offering resources to people attracted to children.

The goal of the study is to receive feedback regarding the messaging/approach of a new online support platform for MAPs. The survey covers the following topics: 1) current well-being and motivation for treatment, 2) evaluation of the messages and 3) sexual interests.

People who identify as being attracted to minors are invited to participate by completing an approximately 15 minute survey. Interested potential participants may click the following link to participate or learn more:
