The International Society for
the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (ISPCAN) is pleased to announce that
in autumn 2015, for the first time ever, the ISPCAN European Conference on
Child Abuse and Neglect will be held in Bucharest, Romania. It will be
co-hosted with the NGO Federation for Children (FONPC). ISPCAN and Dr. Maria
Roth, Chair of the Social Work Department, Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj, will
co-chair the event.
The 2015 ISPCAN European
Regional Conference theme is Collaborative Responses to Child Abuse and
Neglect — Cross-Sectorial Prevention and Intervention. It is expected to
attract approximately 500-700 delegates, with a major focus on attracting
professionals from a multitude of disciplines including health, legal,
psychology, social services, and education as well as government and
non-government services. We are looking forward to a stimulating event where we
can come together to consider how best to protect children from all forms of
violence, appropriately respond when violence has occurred, and maximize the
wellbeing of children.
for its wide, tree-lined boulevards, glorious Belle Époque buildings and a
reputation for the high life (which in the 1900s earned its nickname of
"Little Paris"), Bucharest, Romania's largest city and capital, is
today a bustling metropolis. Romanian legend has it that the city of Bucharest
was founded on the banks of the
Dambovita River by a shepherd named Bucur, whose name literarily means
"joy." As Romania is a member of
the European Union, traveling to Bucharest is easy and convenient.
together with FONPC, invites you to join this conference in 2015 to experience
sharing of knowledge and skills in the child protection field, as well as the
cultural gem of Bucharest.
