Multi-disciplinarity and Participation in Child Protection – a Transnational Training Program

The Hague Institute for Global Justice (Netherlands), 30 September 2017

Strengthening multi-disciplinary working and the participation of children, parents and other family member is at the core of improving child protection policy and practice across Europe and beyond.

When professionals and institutions work collaboratively in the sensitive field of family life and share a focus on each child’s development the participation of children, parents and other family members increasingly gains in importance.

In an EU funded project partners and associate partners from eight EU member states have brought together their expertise and experiences to develop a train-the-trainer program: Multi‑disciplinary Assessment and Participation of Children in Child Protection Procedures – MAPChiPP.

The MAPChiPP International Symposium will describe the program the results of the evaluation of seminars held in eight European countries. Participants in this symposium will gain free access to the training materials.
