Countries in Transition Forum

Saturday, September 13, 2014

The Countries in Transition Forum provides an arena in which delegates from countries where work is in progress to develop child protection and child welfare systems can share their experiences and meet other experts in the field of child abuse and neglect. The format is highly interactive. In 2014, the Countries in Transition Forum will focus on culture and violence, including in-depth workshop on "Ending corporal punishment - A proposal from Asia to the world" and "Exposing children to domestic violence - a form of child abuse". This is a full-day program and includes lunch. Learn more (PDF)>>>


We hope that those attending the Countries in Transition Forum will also attend the Master Class the following day, Sunday, September 14th.

Getting It Right From Start to Finish: Understanding, intervening and treating victimization

The purpose of the Master Class program is to provide an opportunity to spend a day with leaders within the field of child abuse and neglect to hear their extensive and seasoned experience on a spectrum of topical areas, to gain knowledge that will improve practice for clinicians and to assist in formulating and implementing best practices.

This year’s Congress theme is "Towards child-centered societies: Learn from the past, act for the future” and the Master Class will link into this theme and will focus on 5 key areas creating an opportunity also for participants to engage and dialogue with the presenters.

Youth Forum

Saturday, September 13, 2014

The theme of Youth Forum in 2014 is "Our voices change the world.” This program is by invitation only and will allow youth from different countries to spend an entire day together. For those unable to attend personally we are looking at virtual participation through visual arts and technology in order to maximize participation of young people around the world.


In the morning, after reviewing Malala Yousafzai’s speech at the United Nations, each youth will report his/her own experience, get connected to one another, and share with the group the importance of sending our thoughts out to the world. At lunch time, they will have the opportunity to enjoy their time together, singing and dancing. In the afternoon, the youth will discuss issues focusing on child abuse and neglect, bullying, and other family problems. Finally, they will send out to the world, their messages, as well as sharing the voices of friends who have not yet been heard, so that the conflicts we all face every day will be resolved. We hope that those attending Youth Forum will also attend the Congress Plenary Presentation, Monday, September 15th.
