|Denver Thinking Space - 2011|
The International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (ISPCAN), with the generous support of the Oak Foundation, hosted the inaugural ISPCAN 'Denver Thinking Space' 2011: Child Sexual Abuse in Denver (USA) on 5-7 May 2011. The aim of the 'Denver Thinking Space' is to provide the international community with a snapshot of high-level clinical and policy advice that is informed by multi-cultural, multi-lingual and multi-disciplinary input; universally applicable across language and culture; sensitive to the realities of resources; and a practical resource for the use of senior practitioners hoping to influence policy-makers and senior officials in their own geographical and cultural areas.
More than 35 people from a broad range of national, professional and organizational backgrounds attended the successful inaugural 'Denver Thinking Space.' Further engagement and concurrent on-line discussion with other ISPCAN members was enabled through live video-streaming of the presentations and supplemented by input from workshops at subsequent ISPCAN international meetings.
It is ISPCAN's hope that this document provides an insight into this complex area of public policy and clinical work - and inspiration for decision makers and practitioners around the globe.
