38th Annual San Diego International Conference on Child and Family Maltreatment

January 21-27, 2023

The EFJCA took part in the 38th Annual San Diego International Conference on Child and Family Maltreatment. The conference was organized by Chadwick Center for Children and Families.

Multidisciplinary efforts

The San Diego Conference focused on multidisciplinary efforts to prevent child and family maltreatment if possible; otherwise, to investigate, treat, and prosecute those responsible for the abuse of children and families.

Professional skills

The San Diego Conference aimed to develop and enhance professional skills and knowledge in the prevention, recognition, assessment, and treatment of all forms of maltreatment, including those related to family violence, and to enhance investigative and legal skills.

Other goals of the conference included improving investigative and legal abilities. In-depth problems involve providing assistance to families, taking preventative measures, being a leader, and formulating public policy. Applying the most recent research findings is another topic that was covered.
