The International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (ISPCAN) initiated its World Perspectives on Child Abuse: An International Resource Book in 1992, as part of the Ninth International Congress on Child Maltreatment held in Chicago, Illinois. Since that time, nine editions of this publication have been produced and released at subsequent biennial Congresses sponsored by ISPCAN. This document is the Tenth Edition in the series and is being released in conjunction with the 10th International Congress being held in Istanbul, Turkey. All of these efforts have sought to bring attention and understanding to the worldwide problem of child abuse and neglect and to highlight key differences across national policies in this area.
