The Kempe Center Summer Institute on Child Protection

Date: 
Monday, July 6, 2015 - Friday, July 24, 2015
Time: 
Denver, CO
Sponsoring Agency: 
The Kempe Center
Description: 

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 Kempe Center is launching a Summer Institute on Child Protection from July 6-24, 2015 in Denver, CO.  The Institute is for individuals interested in advancing their knowledge and skills in research, clinical practice, leadership and policy related to child abuse and neglect and family violence.  The short course, highly interactive format will provide ample opportunity to network with faculty, other participants, and special guests.  Contact us for course descriptions, faculty, tuition and registration procedures at Nyla.Nasser@childrenscolorado.org or go to our website at www.thekempecenter.org.
