It is not often that we get to experience a phenomenon like the National Protective Behaviours Conference, where almost 300 people are brought together by one common goal; to keep our kids safe!
Hosted by Act for Kids and Protective Behaviours Australia, the sold out event absolutely exceeded expectations with the many dedicated professionals sharing current research, innovative practice and systematic approaches all in one room.
Protective Behaviours Australia President Bronwyn Clee said she is incredibly grateful for everyone who attended, presented and participated in the 2018 National Protective Behaviours Conference.
“It was a privilege and an honour to emcee the event, and to not only experience such high caliber content, but to also meet and greet so many passionate people from all states and territories committed to helping children, youth and adults feel safe,” she said.
The two-day event featured keynote speakers from all around Australia sharing their research, insights and knowledge of protective behaviours.
Combined with informative and interactive workshops, attendees walked away empowered with the knowledge to collectively reduce the incidence and impact of abuse and violence in the community.
