Child Sexual Abuse: A Review of Practical Interventions from an International Perspective
ISPCAN is pleased to host the 11th Virtual Issue Discussions (VIDs) on "Child Sexual Abuse: A Review of Practical Interventions from an International Perspective" to be held May 5-6, 2011 in conjunction with the Denver Round-Table discussion at the ISPCAN headquarters.
Purpose of ISPCAN's Virtual Issues Discussion (VID) Forum
The purpose of this forum is to initiate a discussion among professionals on important issues facing the field of child maltreatment. It is hoped that the VID may stimulate new thinking and offer useful ideas to professionals around the world.
The Denver Round-Table is an invitation only event that will assemble local, regional, and international professionals who will share expertise to support the management and prevention of child sexual abuse across country, language and cultural barriers. Those invited to participate in this event will listen to presentations by primary speakers, participate in a day-long discussion session and then contribute to a working paper on "Options for Responding to Child Sexual Abuse” which will be published by ISPCAN.
VID and Denver Round-Table
ISPCAN members will have a unique opportunity to listen to the Primary Speaker online either live or on video and participate in an online discussion forum. The online discussion will be used as an important international contribution to the working paper.
