Prevent Child Abuse New York is pleased to present the 18th annual New York State Child Abuse Prevention Conference. The conference inspires and equips professionals, advocates, and caregivers to strengthen families, prevent child abuse, and improve outcomes for at-risk children and families. This year you’ll find the quality programming this conference is famous for—nationally renowned keynote speakers and highly rated workshops—along with some new offerings. In response to participant feedback and emerging trends in the field, we’ve added a dedicated track of workshops focused on Personal and Organizational Resilience. We’re looking forward to the best conference yet—one that will leave you with new skills, new resources, and renewed energy and inspiration to continue your service to New York’s children and families.
Attendees represent many different voices, working in varying arenas: parenting education, family support, child abuse prevention and child protective services, intervention and treatment, domestic violence, early childhood education, health care, mental health, legal services, schools and in the home as parents. Their common vision is to build a world where all children grow in healthy and nurturing homes, schools, neighborhoods and communities.
