Join us for the unveiling of the Canadian Bar Association's "Child Rights Toolkit"! Attend this free webinar and you will be the first to be introduced to the CBA's "Child Rights Toolkit", an online resource developed by diverse legal professionals from across Canada that will be brought to life at the Access to Justice for Children Conference, taking place on May 11 and 12, 2017.
You can use this toolkit long into the future and better understand key themes that cross-cut all areas of the justice system in your practice, such as:
- cultural competency and what this means for all of us arising from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Recommendations;
- children living free from all forms of violence; and
- child participation essentials from the perspectives of psychology, social work, law enforcement, as well as child and family serving agencies.
