For this research, the data collection process was based on the questionnaire used by an international research conducted by The Queens University Belfast. The main aim of the research was to reveal children’s vision on violence, both from the perspective of help request and of the profile of the person offering help. The results show that for children, the most important thing is to have a person willing to listen to them and take them seriously, to offer them credibility, to act for stopping the abuse, to be patient. Also, children believe that the lack of help request is mainly due to fear. In addition, the fear that the situation might get worse and that the aggressor might find out about one’s testimony are causes presumed by children for non-testifying about one’s experiences of violence. Previous studies, however, show that the spectrum of reasons and perspectives is much broader, and the need to engage children's opinion in establishing ways to support them is increasingly obvious.
