Clinical, Legal, and Scientific Perspectives on Child Maltreatment Fourth Annual Conference on Trauma and Victimization

Nova Southeastern University
Fort Lauderdale , Florida
March 6-7, 2004


This conference will explore multiple perspectives on child maltreatment, with an eye towards examining how new clinical, legal, and academic approaches might improve our society's response to child maltreatment. The presenters will explore legal, clinical, and system barriers that may interfere with child protection goals and explore new creative solutions for helping children caught in the cycle of intergenerational violence and abuse. Presenters will examine misinformation in the media, academia, and the courtroom about child maltreatment that may impede child protection goals and highlight scientific evidence concerning the physical and emotional consequences of child maltreatment.
