For professionals which working with children – psychologists, social workers, and educators in children’s homes, kindergartens, and social welfare centers, the Zagreb Child and Youth Protection Center organized an expert lecture about child abuse and neglect. An interactive online lecture for about 70 participants was held on July 10, 2020, by the psychologist of our Center, Krešimir Prijatelj, and was registered by professional chambers of psychologists and social workers.
During the lecture, the psychologist Krešimir Prijatelj presented the latest data on the prevalence of abuse and neglect of children in Croatia, Europe and the world, and presented the findings of recent research on the consequences of various forms of abuse and neglect on the physical and mental health of children and youth. Through the Zoom platform, experts also participated in the survey and shared their experiences on the topic of child abuse and neglect.
Due to the great interest of experts who work with children, the Zagreb Child and Youth Protection Center will continue to organize such professional lectures, and we will announce them through our website.
