HJ Talks About Abuse: The First Annual Hugh James National Conference on Child Sexual Abuse, Prevention and Support on 25 January
On 25 January we held our first Hugh James National Conference on Child Sexual Abuse, Prevention and Support in association with NSPCC Cymru/Wales. The conference was aimed at professionals and organisations that are involved in preventing, addressing and prosecuting Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) cases. Through a series of talks from an industry-leading ensemble of speakers including an MP and a Welsh AM, the conference sought to strengthen the approach to CSA, to prevent it from happening in the first place and to better support victims.
The panel discussion in the afternoon debated the question: ‘Should child sexual abuse be addressed using a public health approach?’
In this audio recording, Partner Alan Collins and I present a roundup of the day for those of you who could not make it. Hopefully, it will encourage you to come to the next one!
