NYCC is at the forefront of a number of educational projects focused on diagnosis, prevention and treatment of child abuse.

In addition to our annual conference, our educational offerings include workshops and intern/externships geared to various constituencies including professional, community groups and students.


Every year our conference produces and distributes action steps which help shape and inform public policy on child abuse.

Held in association with the New York City Administration for Children’s Services and Prevent Child Abuse America, it highlights best practices and innovative approaches to a range of situations.
