20th National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect
August 31 - September 2, 2016  Grand Hyatt Washington  Washington DC

Sponsored by the Children’s Bureau’s Office on Child Abuse and Neglect, the 20th NCCAN will bring together professionals, researchers, policy makers, parents, and volunteers from a wide variety of disciplines who share a commitment to ensuring the well-being of children and families. The NCCANs are widely recognized as being unique in their scope and the deep diversity of participants. This year’s theme, Building Community, Building Hope, acknowledges the tremendous power in communities to address the problem of child abuse and neglect, and reflects our goal of providing a multidisciplinary forum focused on intersections of research, policy, and practice related to promoting child and family well-being and protecting children, to ensure that they grow up to achieve their full potential, free from abuse and neglect.
