On November 22 the EFJCA, together with Filomena (Center for Domestic Violence and Child Abuse Rotterdam Rijnmond), Erasmus MC Sophia Children's Hospital, the FARR (Forensic Doctors Rotterdam Rijnmond) and the Center for Sexual Violence (CSG) Rotterdam Rijnmond, organized the 1-day masterclass/conference 'Care & Safety connect to prevent violence'.
