Happy New Year to All!

2016 has just begun and  as a new year resolution we are full of plans. We are currently working on bringing the website to life with more interaction, fun and exchange. At the same time we are planning to publish our own e-learning courses, the first one on child participation. We continue our good tradition of thematic newsletters, the next one being on 'men's role in child protection'. Last but not least, do not miss the upcoming webinar on emotional health of social workers! In this spirit, wishing you a successful balancing of work- and personal life!
