Child maltreatment: A Concordia-Community conversation
BY INVITATION ONLY
A gathering of scholars, practitioners, and communities of interest from Montreal and environs to dialogue on the gaps and challenges in child maltreatment and child advocacy research, services, education and policy
Please join researchers at Concordia University on October 19 and 20 to develop a vision for working together to improve the well-being of youth. A report will be produced, indicating participant information, findings and next steps.
Our aim is to learn more about each other’s work in the areas of child maltreatment and child advocacy. We hope to exchange knowledge and to develop a multidisciplinary and multisectoral partnership, while identifying gaps and challenges in child maltreatment and child advocacy research, services, education and policy. Topics may include:
- pregnant women at high-risk,
- culturally appropriate services,
- intergenerational trauma,
- minority or underserved populations,
- life course perspectives on child maltreatment and neglect, and
- preventive and therapeutic interventions.
