Educating professionals on best practices in child trauma

In support of our commitment to excellence, the Dee Norton Child Advocacy Center sponsors annual conferences for child maltreatment professionals with an emphasis on furthering empirically-based, best practices among those who serve child abuse and child trauma victims. Year after year, Dee Norton attracts nationally recognized professionals and trainers to come to Charleston, SC to bring and share their expertise.



The Charleston Child Trauma Conference will be hosted by the Dee Norton Child Advocacy Center on October 18-21, 2016 at the Francis Marion Hotel, located in downtown Charleston, SC.  The Conference will offer professionals in the field of child abuse and trauma the opportunity to bridge science and practice in order to better serve children and families.  The Charleston Child Trauma Conference will be the first of its kind on the East Coast and will bridge those two worlds by sparking dialogue among front line professionals in the child maltreatment field and cutting edge researchers.
