The Third Haruv International Conference May 2023 – Child maltreatment in context
The Haruv Institute is pleased to announce its third international conference on child maltreatment – both in the aspect of physical, mental and sexual abuse and in the aspect of neglect.
Child maltreatment involves a range of factors: intra-personal, inter-personal and environmental, and has far-reaching consequences for the proper development of the child. The conference will emphasize the context in which child maltreatment occurs, its implications and ways to prevent and or better treat its victims. The conference aims to become a forum that promotes the discussion on maltreatment from a variety of disciplines: social sciences, humanities, social work, law, criminology, medicine, nursing and public health.
The conference will include world known keynote speakers, and papers in symposia and parallel sessions.
Location: Mount Scopus campus of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
May 17th-18th, 2023.
The conference will be conducted in English.
