The 21st National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect (NCCAN) offers an exceptional opportunity for those committed to achieving better outcomes for children and families to connect and learn. Unique in its scope and diversity, the 21st NCCAN will bring together practitioners, researchers, policy makers, parents, and volunteers from a wide variety of disciplines who come to gain new knowledge and understanding, build new skills, and reenergize for the always challenging work ahead. The 21st NCCAN is sponsored by the Office on Child Abuse and Neglect, Children’s Bureau, Administration on Children, Youth and Families. The conference theme, “Strong and Thriving Families”, recognizes that supporting families is important to ensuring the safety, permanency and well-being of our nation’s children.
Join us in Washington, DC on April 24–26, 2019, for an outstanding slate of sessions at the 21st NCCAN. The Children’s Bureau is committed to offering a program that features a cadre of compelling and thought-provoking speakers to engage you in deeply meaningful conversations and learning opportunities to inform your work. Sessions will include workshops, policy forums, skill seminars, and other opportunities to hear from peers and experts in the field.
