7th Nordic Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect, Bergen, Norway 14th - 16th of May 2012


"Child Abuse and Neglect in a cross-cultural perspective: Possibilities and Challenges". The theme of the congress reflects the fact that Nordic societies today have become a tapestry woven from a diversity of cultures. What possibilities and challenges does that provide us with regard to the disclosure, investigation, treatment, research and prevention of child abuse and neglect? How can we support children from all cultural backgrounds who are exposed to abuse and neglect and ensure them a safe childhood?

The NASPCAN Congress is a Nordic event for professionals, policy makers, academics and researchers. During the three days of Congress a large number of presentations will be delivered to an audience of professionals from a broad range of disciplines and nationalities.

The Congress is organized in cooperation with Resource Centre on Violence, Traumatic Stress and Suicide Prevetion, Bergen Children’s Advocacy Centre, and the Norwegian Centre for Violence and Traumatic Stress Studies (NKVTS).
