Since August 2015, schoolchildren in general education schools can be looked after through the violence prevention counseling center, where the suspicion has materialized that they follow a religious-extremist dogma (e.g. Salafism). In case reports from general education schools on specific individual cases (school-age young people), a first confidential search and examination of the facts takes place. A case responsibility in the violence prevention counseling center is pronounced immediately in the case of acute cases (“worst-case scenario”); in other cases, a joint risk assessment of all participating institutions takes place, which should lead to corresponding case responsibilities. It can be decided whether the specialists of the youth welfare agency used continue or establish contact with the family and the youth or whether an official case responsibility has to be declared.
