9e Conférence internationale S'occuper des enfants - Jeunesse en tête : Au-delà du risque les besoins de développement

Octobre 25, 2010 - Octobre 27, 2010
Montréal (Québec)

Le thème retenu pour cette édition est : « Jeunesse en tête. Au-delà du risque : les besoins de développement » :

  • Jeunesse en tête…Parce que la jeunesse est l’affaire de tous et qu’elle doit être au centre des priorités de la société québécoise.
  • Au-delà du risque : les besoins de développement…Parce qu’il faut protéger les enfants et les jeunes tout en leur permettant de se développer
    de façon optimale. Et ce, sans perdre de vue les besoins de développement de la communauté, de la recherche, des organisations sur les plans du personnel clinique et administratif, de la relève, des pratiques de pointe ou des systèmes d’information.

Ce congrès conjoint sera l’occasion d’aborder des enjeux spécifiques liés à l’évaluation des besoins des enfants et des jeunes, ainsi qu’aux stratégies à adopter pour y répondre. Ces enjeux spécifiques s’incarnent dans les sept thèmes suivants : les approches centrées sur les besoins de développement des enfants et des jeunes; le soutien à la parentalité; les approches intégrées; les approches participatives; la planification de l’intervention et des services; la qualité des services et les défis organisationnels. La stabilité et la continuité sont des préoccupations qui traverseront l’ensemble des sept thèmes du congrès. Les communications recherchées peuvent porter sur des initiatives d’intervention (approches, programmes, outils), des résultats de recherche, ainsi que sur des innovations dans les services administratifs et de soutien.

Pathways to Resilience II: The Social Ecology of Resilience

Juin 7, 2010 - Juin 10, 2010
Halifax, Nova Scotia
An international gathering that will explore how individuals, families and communities from different cultures and contexts can overcome adversity and thrive.

This conference, our second, brings together presenters from six continents to explore aspects of resilience such as how we:
• design clinical interventions and social programs to make resilience more likely
• offer informal community supports in ways young people want
• nurture healthy family, school and community relationships
• celebrate cultural traditions that support children’s mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being
• design schools for vulnerable learners
• negotiate social policy that is child and youth friendly
• secure peace and contribute to social justice and citizenship for children
Together, as an interdisciplinary group, we will discuss not only how children beat the odds stacked against them, but how professionals and caregivers can change those odds so that young people around the world experience resilience in culturally meaningful ways.
