Annual IUN Forum on Abuse and Neglect

34th Annual Forum: April 2024

Fathering: Challenges and Solutions

Friday, April 19, 2024 – 9:00am–4:00pm CDT

In recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month in April, PCALC collaborates with Indiana University Northwest’s Center for Urban and Regional Excellence (CURE) and a variety of community organizations to present the Annual Forum on Child Abuse and Neglect.

Held each year at IUN’s Bergland Auditorium, the forum brings together professionals who works with families and children as well as concerned citizens to address the issues of child abuse and neglect and to raise awareness. Child Welfare professionals from around the state and the country are invited to speak on child abuse prevention efforts and child protection strategies.

The Forum seeks to invigorate the child-serving community while offering an opportunity to network with like-minded individuals. Each year, the Forum provides hundreds of human services professionals, foster families, and other caregivers with:

  • High-quality continuing education and professional development training that qualifies for Social Work continuing education units (CEUs).
  • Opportunities to network and to connect to a community of practice.
  • A platform to address and discuss relevant public policies.
