ISPCAN in partnership with our Italian country partner, CISMAI is very proud to bring the 2020 Congress to be held in the Rimini Convention Center from June 22-24, 2020.  We welcome you to join us, learn, and share.  We have nine themes, exciting keynoters and core courses to gain beginner and advanced skills all while soaking up the sun on the beautiful Mediterranean coast.

Child maltreatment in all its forms are universal health issues that cause immense individual suffering.

It affects all layers of our society, and no country or region is immune to it. We invite you to join us in Rimini, Italy, to investigate approaches to preventing violence against children and interventions to support fragile parenting, based on scientific knowledge and research. CISMAI, the largest organization in Italy against mistreatment, and ISPCAN have joined hands to spread awareness and make lives of these children and their families better by working together with communities, organizations, and networks.

On behalf of both our organizations, we sincerely welcome you.

Dr. Gloria Soavi, President, CISMAI
Dr. Victoria Lidchi, ISPCAN Councilor
