Ending Violence Against Children:
Developing a Roadmap to a
Healthy Childhood and Adolescence
The hidden public health epidemic of violence against children is one of the root causes of mental health and substance abuse problems. This conference will impart practical strategies from a variety of experts and providers to raise awareness and better understand how to identify and treat victims of violence, with the goal of ending violence against young people. There will be opportunities for collaboration among practitioners, policy makers, governments, academics, civil society, the private sector, and victims/survivors themselves.
We encourage all those interested to attend, including but not limited to physicians, nurses, physician assistants, social workers, policy makers, academics and victims/survivors themselves. An excellent opportunity to earn CME credit.
