We would like to invite you to join faculty from the Kempe Center and the University of Colorado for a participatory and interdisciplinary Institute on Child Protection. Our Summer Institute offers short, intensive courses for professionals, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows who are concerned about the safety of children.
In 1993, the U.S. Advisory Board on Child Abuse and Neglect declared child abuse and neglect a "national emergency." More than 20 years later, child abuse and neglect continue to be a serious and prevalent public health problem. In the United States alone, 3 million reports of child abuse and neglect involving more than 6 million children are made each year. Many more go unreported. Without appropriate and timely intervention, research suggests that these children may experience long-term health problems.
The Summer Institute is designed to improve knowledge, practice, and policy related to the prevention, identification, and treatment of child abuse and neglect and family violence. Participants will learn the latest approaches in research, clinical services, prevention and administration. Through special events, participants will have an opportunity to network with each other and with faculty.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
The Summer Institute is designed for the following professionals who have an interest in child abuse and neglect:
