CFP: ISPCAN European Regional Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect

I will be speaking as one of the keynotes in this conference, here spreading the word about its CFP:

The 12th ISPCAN European Regional Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect arranged by the University of Tampere and ISPCAN (International Society for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect), together with NASPCAN (The Nordic Society for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect)

Time: 18 – 21 September, 2011
Place: Tampere Hall, Tampere, Finland
Theme: Challenging Social Responsibilities for Child Abuse and Neglect

Child abuse and neglect are issues which challenge practitioners, decision makers and researchers as well as parents, children and communities: whose responsibility is it to react, respond and care and how should it be done? The Conference offers a multiprofessional and multidisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners, activists and decision-makers – not forgetting children and young people themselves – to share views and experiences by arranging plenaries, workshops and informal social meeting places. The Nordic, European and global perspectives will support our joint efforts to promote the well-being and safety of children and their families globally.

Tentative conference sub themes:

  • Social responsibility in every-day practice: tools, ethics and assessment
  • Multiprofessional cooperation between authorities and experts
  • Child and youth involvement and participation
  • Abuse and neglect in socio-cultural contexts: global rights, local challenges
  • Methods and ethics in child abuse research
