April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The Children’s Bureau and the National Child Abuse Prevention Partners are offering a video series this month called Connections.
The series of videos will be released every Wednesday, and topics will include strategies for abuse prevention, promoting research, and strengthening families and communities. Tomorrow (April 1) beginning at 2:30 PM EDT, Children’s Bureau Associate Commissioner JooYeun Chang will kick off the series with a live web conference discussing the important prevention components of the FY2016 President’s Budget request for the Administration for Children and Families. Anyone interested in participating can join the discussion at https://esi.adobeconnect.com/cbsession.
