Abstracts for 2015 HFCC closing August 31

Do you have something to say about your work and parenting in a changing and complicated world?

The closing date for abstracts for the 2015 Helping Families Change Conference is fast approaching.

The HFCC scientific committee is looking for abstracts from a variety of countries and particularly welcomes abstracts from early career researchers such as PhD students and postdoctoral students.

Abstracts from researchers, practitioners, policy makers and professionals in the field of evidence-based parenting intervention will be warmly welcomed by the committee and need to touch on next year’s conference theme of Parenting in a Changing and Complicated World.

Organisers are anticipating the 2015 HFCC will be the biggest on record and are expecting a record number of abstract submissions by the deadline of August 31.

The event will be supplemented by an exciting social program that will enable delegates to grow their international networks and experience the best that Amsterdam has to offer.

World leaders in the fields of prevention science, neurobiological research into child maltreatment and child welfare policy will be keynote speakers. They include:

  • Matt Sanders, Professor of Clinical Psychology and Director of the Parenting and Family Support Centre at the University of Queensland and founder of the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program
  • Neil Humphrey, Professor of Psychology in Education at the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom
  • Marinus H. van IJzendoorn, Professor of Child and Family Studies at Leiden University and a research professor of human development at Erasmus University Rotterdam (The Netherlands)
