ISCPAN webinar on using standardized, validated measurement tools with children exposed to abuse

In September 2023, the International Society for Prevention of Child Abuse & Neglect (ISPCAN) will host a conference where researchers from the Danish National Centre for Psychotraumatology will participate. Together with colleagues from Lithuania and Norway, they will present projects on the development, implementation, and validation of our story stem test Odense Child Trauma Screening (OCTS) in the three countries respectively.

Leading up to the conference, ISPCAN is organising a series of free webinars. Topics covered include the use of trauma-focused screening and intervention in child sexual abuse cases and on the prevention of peer violence.
Their next webinar is about the importance of using standardized and validated measurement tools in research and practice involving abused children. The Danish National Centre for Psychotraumatology advocates strongly for this as well,  and for the past 12 years we have been working on developing, translating, implementing, and validating standardized tools for (younger) children. Therefore, we look forward to participating in the webinar, which will be held on 23rd August at 15:00-16:30 CET. The webinar is open to everyone and anyone interested can register here.
