As a follow-up to their recent survey, Experiences and Perceptions of Frontline Professionals on Protecting Children Against Abuse During COVID-19, ISPCAN and ISPCC (International Scholars for Protecting Children During COVID-19) would like to invite frontline practitioners to participate in a focus group to discuss in depth your experiences with protective services and policies aimed at protecting children and their families during COVID-19. 
“We are looking for 10-12 frontline professionals of any discipline and experience level working in child abuse and neglect to share your thoughts and experiences over the past year and a half. The information we collect during this focus group is vitally important to understanding the challenges and opportunities that protection systems professionals have been exposed to, so that we can generate evidence to inform policies, guidelines, and best practices. 
Space is limited! If you are interested in participating, please email Heather Hein at to save your spot and we will send you a link to register for the event, which will be held on Zoom. In your email, please let us know your name, your title and organization, your country, and which language you are interested in.
