What We Do

Protection

Child Protection Institute 

Child Protection Institute protects child victims of violence and unlawful cares by integrating Child Protection Acts 2003 and other concerned laws to follow a systematic child protection operation. The process starts from investigation, fact-finding, social welfare assistance, child protection, treatment, rehabilitation, legal assistance and re-integration. To rescue a child victim more effectively, Child Protection Institute also coordinates with multidisciplinary teams - who are 

medical professions, social workers, Competent Official under Child Protection Acts 2003 and legal officers. CPCR and the multidisciplinary teams design an appropriate rescue plan for the child victim. Every year Child Protection Institute protects nearly 300 child victims.

 

The Capacity Building of Child Protection Officers and Practitioners

CPCR conducts a capacity building for child protection officers and practitioners from both state organizations and other NGOs. The training would allow them to understand the child protection operation. The trainees are invited to join ‘the Case Conference’ which allows them to understand how to design an appropriate rescue plan for child victims and how to summarize the case.

Resilience

Child & Family Resilence Program

The Resilience Unit provides a resilience program for child victims of violence and duty bearers. Programs of physical treatment therapy and mental treatment therapy – both single and group treatment therapy – are designed to comply with their pathopsychology. There are various treatment programs - such as medical treatment, child & family relationship building program, art therapy, drama therapy, EMDR therapy, Satir Transformational and Systemic Therapy. Also, children would be promoted their child development while their duty bears would learn about child rearing and child safety. During resilience programs, CPCR continually does a home visitation to follow up, escorts cases to meet psychiatrists and evaluate cases.

 

‘Art Builds Happiness’

This is another treatment program that the Resilience Unit supports children by introducing the art therapy to build happiness and promote their self-esteem. The program is implemented at Sueksa Songkhro School, a boarding school for underprivileged students. It shows that these students left their houses and stay in new unacquainted environments. They may feel isolated, sad or lonely. In some cases, they choose a wrong path. They are drug addicted and believe that this would be the only way to help them. Therefore, ‘Art Builds Happiness’ would be a program that helps students to find the right path. Children would build their own capacity ans self-esteem. The pure art from what they have created would reflect their true emotions, feelings and desires.

Prevention

Child & Duty Bearer Development Program

In 2019, the Child & Family Development Unit has launched the program ‘Child Bullying Prevention’. This program aims to promote sympathy and caring for children. They understand how to protect themselves away from bullying. CPCR also works with schools to set up a system to prevent child bullying in their schools. The program focuses on coordination between students, teachers and school management teams to diminish the situation of child bullying in school.    

 

Child Protection School (Safe School)

Child Protection School is a program that the Child & Family Development Unit has launched since 2003. The Idea of the program is from an intention that wishes every school as a safe place for children. The schools can protect and assist their own students if there is a case of emergency. Therefore, CPCR continually works with schools to lift up a quality of life for children. Dangers that may happen are prevented. Many child development activities have been promoted in schools all over the country. Students who need a special assistance such as student who is a victim of violence, a student who has an inappropriate behaviour, a student who has delayed development or a student who has a conflict with the law, are well looked after. In 2008, the program has been more sustainable when CPCR receives cooperation from Office of the Basic Education Commission, Ministry of Education. Currently, there are 90 schools nationwide that are joining the program.

Child Protection Community (Safe Community)

In 1999, the Child and Family Development Unit worked with Wat Pracharabuetham Community to strengthen a family relationship in its area. Later, that cooperation lighted up an idea for CPCR to promote a safe community. In 2006, Child Protection Community had been officially launched. The program is initially been commenced in 3 communities from 2 provinces – Bangkok and Krabi – as a pilot project. Then, the program has been continually developed and there are now 14 communities from 5 provinces. The program aims to build a child safety, child safeguarding and child & family development in the areas. In 2019, CPCR works with Child Protection Communities to launch a program ‘Stop Violence against Children’ in the community which aims to diminish a situation of child violence in the community.
