The African regional child trauma conference

Sunday, August 18, 2019 to Wednesday, August 21, 2019

The African regional trauma conference aims to gather people who are committed to changing the landscape of child protection in Africa.

This collaborative transdisciplinary conference will seek to:

  • Showcase research and innovations in preventing and managing child abuse and neglect
  • Create opportunities for all stake holders and role players in the field of child protection (including social workers, psychologists, medical doctors, policemen, presiding officers of the Criminal, Child Justice and Children’s Courts) and mental health to share experiences and build inter-sectoral collaboration
  • Offer skills-building workshops in tried and tested interventions relevant to the African context
  • Create a platform for children and communities, social change activists and advocacy groups to share their personal challenges
