  • Leadership in child protection

Presenters include Professor Stephen Smallbone - Emeritus Professor Griffith University; Dr Judith Howard - Senior Lecturer, School of Early Childhood and Inclusive Education, Queensland University of Technology; Dr Katrina Lines, Executive Director of Services, Act for Kids.
