Interventions

In cases where prevention and disengagement efforts are relevant, the pertinent authority – e.g. the municipality in collaboration with one or more others - carries out a supportive intervention.

Tailor made interventions

The intervention must build on the resources of the person in question and address the needs and risk factors of the person, as identified in the assessment made in Info-house Municipality. The intervention will often be based on the legal possibilities provided in social, employment, health and other relevant legislations to give the individual a tailor made support and, where relevant, also involving parents or others in the persons network.

Mentors and parent coaches

One possible element in the supportive intervention is a mentor or parent coach. In partnership with a range of municipalities, the Danish Centre for Prevention of Extremism has established a nationwide corps of mentors and parent coaches, specially trained to work with at-risk individuals and their relatives.

The mentors and parent coaches are trained in the method Solution Focused Work with Life Skills which consists of three methodological elements:

  • Balanced assessment of concerns and resources
  • Life Skills and Life Psychology 
  • Solution-focused dialogue principles
