This major international congress will bring together practitioners, survivors of abuse, researchers, trainers and policy makers to learn from each other, reflect and consider how we can improve services to support families and protect children and young people.
The Congress theme of Thinking Outside the Box reflects our desire to learn and develop, encouraging all participants to be creative and reflexive, and to interact with each other. A large part of this is the programme of free papers, posters, workshops, symposia, and training events presented by congress participants. We are looking forward to a great programme with lots of engaging presentations by practitioners, researchers, experts by experience and others.
As a congress participant you will:
- Hear innovative and challenging keynote talks from a range of speakers within and outside the child protection fields
- Update your knowledge and skills, learning from new and emerging research
- Learn from survivors and users of family services (experts by experience)
- Network with others who feel passionately about protecting children and supporting families
- Reflect on theory, research and practice to gain a deeper understanding of child abuse and neglect
- Celebrate the good work and progress that has been made in safeguarding children, while acknowledging the ongoing pain experienced by those affected by abuse and neglect, and recognising the need to continually learn and improve
