NJ Department of Children and Families

New Jersey Task Force on Child Abuse and Neglect

2011 Conference



Partnerships for Prevention and Healing

The 2011 Department of Children and Families and the New Jersey Task Force on Child Abuse and Neglect conference focused on building professional knowledge and collaborative partnerships to improve the effectiveness of New Jersey’s child maltreatment protection and prevention efforts, and desire to encourage working relationships among volunteers and professionals in prevention, protective services, health, law enforcement and juvenile justice to create children and family focused systems.

As a value-add for this year’s participants, we have made workshop materials available from those you may not have been able to attend. Any missing presentations are the result of individual presenters not wishing to share their materials in a public forum. NOTE: Access to and review of these materials does not in any way offer additional continuing education credits.
