13th International Conference of Centrs Dardedze “Harmful sexual behavior – can a child hurt a child? How to Understand and Help”

When we think of child sexual abuse, unacceptable relationships between adults and children come to mind. However, internationally recognized child protection organizations have studied that one in three cases happens between children. At the Centrs Dardedze, we also receive calls from parents and professionals about this little-known topic on a weekly basis, so this year we will dedicate our annual conference to the topic of harmful sexual behavior among children.

Time: 26 October 2022 10:00-5:00 p.m. (Eastern European Time)
