NCSPVA 3rd Annual Conference & Lynda Bellingham Memorial Lecture

The Impact of Violence and Abuse on Children and Young People
5 – 6 June 2017, University of Worcester

The focus of the 2017 annual conference is on examining the intersections of childhood and adulthood within the context of violence and abuse. The aim of this conference is to further our understanding of evidence based practice through reflection on developments to date, and the future needs of children growing up within a context of violence. To this end the conference will host a number of keynote presentations and individual oral and poster presentations that will showcase regional, national and international research and practice innovations relating to childhood and violence and safeguarding within this context. We wish to invite all those who work with this issue to attend in order to network and share best practice and to engage in conversations to further evidence based practice.
