Child Protection for the Most Vulnerable Children and Families

13-16 June, 2022, Tallinn, Estonia

The beautiful city of Tallinn is the capital of the Northern European country of Estonia, where everyone can live up to their potential – its biggest asset are the people of Estonia. Estonia boasts a rich history and is home to the next ISPCAN Congress for Europe. We the Congress Chairs are excited about the rich scientific and cultural programme that awaits participants and are pleased to invite you to register and come join us in Tallinn.

The Congress will be held under the theme Child Protection for the Most Vulnerable Children and Families and will emphasize the difficult realities that children face and explore workable strategies that reflect evidence-based responses and best practice to address these difficulties. Our aim is to consider the multifaceted vulnerabilities, such as domestic violence and sexual abuse, institutional care, incarceration or mental health problems of parent(s), alongside those that have arisen more recently as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, such as social isolation and child mental health problems all within the context of supporting children and their closest environments to become resilient beneficiaries of systems of protection in their respective societies. Crises of whatever kind present good opportunities for learning and we are confident that the content and sharing at this Congress will provide participants with sound lessons as well as networking opportunities that will connect you to child protection experts from across the world.

Come experience the magic of Tallinn and the digital society of Estonia while building relationships with like-minded professionals, and also sharing your knowledge and learning from others who are committed to the objectives of protecting vulnerable children. We look forward to hosting you in Tallinn from June 13 to 16, 2022.
