Welcome! The American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children is proud to bring you the 19th Annual APSAC Colloquium.

This year we offer 93 institutes and workshops which address all aspects of child maltreatment including prevention, assessment, intervention and treatment with victims, perpetrators and families affected by physical, sexual and psychological abuse and neglect. Cultural considerations will also be addressed.
