“ Our children are our future.” We must mean what we say – for today’s children will be tomorrow’s parents. In order to limit the impact of child abuse, we have to think in terms of primary, secondary and tertiary prevention – our panelists are experts in various aspects of this field, and will briefly summarize their views, after which the audience will be invited to ask questions or enter into discussion on the points raised or their own points of view.
