33rd Annual Michigan Statewide Conference
October 27, 2014 - October 28, 2014
The 33rd Annual Michigan Statewide Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect will take place on October 27 and 28, 2014.
This year’s 2-day conference features noted national and Michigan experts who will address a range of topics in the field of child abuse prevention, assessment, and treatment. In addition to the keynote presentations and plenary session, attendees will have a choice of over 30 workshops focusing on recent advances and best practices in the areas of prevention, medical issues, child advocacy, and law enforcement.
Using past conference evaluations and topic suggestions, the goal is for conference participants to gain knowledge about practice in the field of child abuse throughout the conference and be able to apply this knowledge in the field.
Participants will also have opportunities to interact and network with other professionals in the field.
The conference is designed for prevention specialists; social workers; child welfare professionals (Children’s Protective Services, Foster Care, Adoption); juvenile justice services; physicians; nurses; mental health and other medical professionals; attorneys; law enforcement; child advocacy professionals; and educators.
