SVRI. (2010). SVRI Research seminar report: Parenting, gender socialisation and the prevention of child abuse and neglect in low- and middle-income countries. SVRI.


The SVRI has commissioned desk reviews on parenting interventions to prevent child neglect and abuse and promote more equitable gender re-socialisation of children. This work has been supported by the Oak Foundation. A preliminary step in this process was the hosting of seminar to present early findings of some of these reviews by researchers from the Department of Social Policy and Social Work, University of Oxford and Department of Public Health, University of Illinois. This was held on Thursday, 23 September 2010, at the Trafalgar Hotel, London, UK. The aim of this workshop was to discuss initial findings of these reviews and the implications for implementing child abuse and neglect prevention programmes in resource poor settings. We also invited researchers working in resource poor settings to provide insight into vulnerability and protective factors for child sexual abuse in India and Sub-Saharan Africa respectively. The following report summarises the presentations and some of the discussions at this workshop.
