35th International Symposium on Child Abuse - Huntsville, AL

It’s a new look, but it’s still the premiere conference for child maltreatment professionals.

For 35 years, child maltreatment professionals have come together at the Symposium to share knowledge, stories, and a passion.


In our new logo, the winding ribbon binds us to our humble beginnings and yet shows us how the mission to protect children now unites our entire planet. It reminds us that child abuse is not limited to one country, one economic status, one gender, one race. We must all work together to create a world where children can grow up, free from abuse.
