The National Symposium on Child Abuse is an informative and innovative multidisciplinary conference which offers more than 130 workshops presented by nationally-recognized experts from all facets of the child maltreatment field. The National Symposium on Child Abuse provides professionals with practical instruction, the latest research and information, and the opportunity to develop and enhance their skills and knowledge. Symposium is one of the few conferences that addresses all aspects of child maltreatment including but not limited to physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, exposure to violence, poly-victimization, exploitation, intervention and prevention. The National Symposium on Child Abuse is a premiere conference that provides expert training and numerous networking opportunities to professionals in the child maltreatment field.

The 31st National Symposium on Child Abuse will be held March 23-26, 2015 in Huntsville, AL

The National Conference on Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation Prevention provides the most successful intervention strategies to professionals tasked with the prevention, recognition, and treatment of maltreated children. Since 1999, attendance at the conference has continued to grow as child prevention and intervention specialists recognize the importance of a conference dedicated to the prevention of child sexual abuse and exploitation.  Workshops are led by experts in the fields of child abuse prevention and intervention.

The 14th National Conference on Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation Prevention is pending.

Both of these conferences feature an outstanding faculty who conduct training and share the latest knowledge and skills in child abuse prevention, intervention and treatment. Networking opportunities and access to Handouts Online provide added value.
