The Injury & Violence Prevention Center is partnering with the Kempe Center to connect prevention workers with the latest science on protecting children.
This program provides free webinars designed for those working in public health organizations, social services, child welfare, and the non-profit sector. These virtual learning experiences feature researchers working on various topics in the primary prevention of child abuse and neglect, as well as Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Through these sessions, people working in prevention can learn more about the latest scientific research to apply in their work, while also helping to inform researchers about on-the-ground issues and priorities. This partnership continues the work of the Child Maltreatment National Peer Learning Team that launched in 2017 with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
