Arizona Republic reporter asks Child Abuse PREVENTION Conference attendees how they'd like to see child welfare system improved
“Imagine a world without child maltreatment. Tell us how to get there by writing your own ‘What if’ statement.”
That invitation was extended recently to Statewide Child Abuse PREVENTION Conference attendees, who were encouraged to write their ideas on post-it notes and add them to the "What If" Wall, a giant bulletin board that was soon covered with inspiring insights about what changes or actions would reduce child neglect and maltreatment and strengthen families.
Arizona Republic Child Welfare reporter Mary Jo Pitzl wanted to hear directly from the professionals doing this important work, and attended the conference to discuss in depth the possibilities they imagine for child welfare in Arizona.
