The 13th National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect took place in April 2001 in Albuquerque, New Mexico with approximately 2,100 participants.
The conference theme “Faces of Change: Embracing Diverse Cultures and Alternative Approaches,” recognized the fact that diversity enables everyone to bring a multitude of approaches to the conference to address the key issues in the field of child abuse and neglect. The theme also reflected the expectation to build on the strengths found in these differences that will create positive opportunities for change. The 13th National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect was a celebration of our strengths in the face of new challenges as we strive to protect children and strengthen families.
