The 10th Nordic Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect

Pace, M. (Speaker)

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventOrganisation and participation in conference


I was invited to speak at this conference on my work with refugee children and especially traumatized refugee children. The theme of the conference is In the Best Interest of the Child: Rhetoric or Reality? This year's conference includes a number of significant international keynote-speakers who will talk about the theme, about trauma and hidden wounds, about poly-victimization, prevention and early intervention and questions for the future, what can be improved. In addition to invited speakers paper presenters come from every Nordic country, reporting on clinical experiences as well as research.
This year the Nordic Association for Preventing Child Abuse and Neglect celebrates its 20th anniversary. It may be doubtful to celebrate that the work with vulnerable children is persistent and continues. Yet NASPCAN has contributed by improving awareness and practice in the work with children who need societal support and a better future across the Nordic countries.
