In the context of psychosocial risk prevention, a project was performed, aimed to sex education and intervention against child sexual abuse. The study, funded by the USR Campania, was executed in secondary level educational institutions of Campania. We have done training sessions for school classrooms with the use of different methodologies and we have enabled a psychological counseling. Three violence cases were discovered. As consequence, it was crucial to develop intervention strategies both with the family and the school, in order to reveal unspoken violences. The school context was fundamental to support the prosecution of actions aimed to detect early violences, to figure out the victims help requests.
