 The purpose of this Special Interest Group is to provide an opportunity for child protection practitioners to share, learn about and discuss up-to-date, practice-relevant research and good, innovative practice and guidance in the area of child sexual abuse; to provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to disseminate their work to a practice audience and to build networks of shared interests and activity; and for practitioners to share and discuss current practice challenges and the ways in which researchers and other practitioners can help to address those challenges. We aim to strengthen the relationship between research and practice. Special Interest Group meetings will be organised differently according to the topics to be discussed, but are likely to involve a guest speaker presenting on a subject followed by questions, discussion and issues to be taken forward.   The purpose of the Special Interest Group will of course evolve as it becomes established in response of the views and wishes of its members.

Please attend if you would like to be part of this newly developed Special Interest Group on CSA.
