Description

Preventing child abuse: Q&A Forum Alice Springs

Any amount of child abuse is too much: it hurts the individual, it hurts the family and it hurts the community - with huge emotional, social and financial costs that can last for generations. The good news, however, is that child abuse can be prevented if we all play our part. Why then is there still so little talk about the things we can do to create communities that support families and children - before problems arise? Why is the topic of primary prevention still largely missing from conversations about child abuse and neglect? And, when prevention is mentioned, why is it still so often confused with early intervention?

In partnership with Communities for Children (CfC) Anglicare NT, NAPCAN invites you to join the conversation about prevention.

Let’s talk. Let’s question. Let’s learn. Let’s share. Let’s get inspired.

Join us for a lively and inspiring Q&A Forum about why primary prevention needs to be front and centre when we talk about child abuse and neglect.

Speakers/Panelists:

  • Shirleen Campbell - Coordinator, Tangentyere Women’s Family Safety Group

  • Professor Frank Oberklaid - Foundation Director of the Centre for Community Child Health at The Royal Children's Hospital, Co-Research Group Leader (Policy, Equity and Translation) at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute and Professor of Paediatrics at the University of Melbourne

  • Veronica Turner - Senior Arrernte Educator, Children’s Ground Central Australia

  • Felicity Hayes - Senior Arrernte Educator, Children’s Ground Central Australia

  • Lesley Taylor - National Manager, Prevention Strategies, NAPCAN

Includes full buffet breakfast and presentation of NT Play Your Part Awards.

For additional information contact Nina Levin on 0427 834 746 or nina.levin@napcan.org.au.

We look forward to seeing you there!
