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

Date: 
Octobre 25, 2010 - Octobre 27, 2010
Location: 
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.

Equity From the Start: 10 years of the EDI and beyond

Date: 
Juin 16, 2010 - Juin 17, 2010
Location: 
Hamilton, ON
 
It has been ten years since Dan Offord and Magdalena Janus designed the Early Development Instrument (EDI) ‐ a tool to measure children’s developmental health at school entry. Now the Canadian EDI database reaches over half a million kindergarten children, and is used or modified for use in over a dozen countries around the world.
A number of international organizations have recognized the need to improve the quality and comparability of global child development indicators. Dr. Magdalena Janus and colleagues including Clyde Hertzman, Fraser Mustard (Canada), Sally Brinkman (Australia) and Neal Halfon (USA) are working with international organizations like World Bank, UNICEF and WHO towards this goal utilizing the experience gained through the EDI studies.
Researchers and policy‐makers working on these projects come from many diverse backgrounds including: child psychology, pediatrics, epidemiology, statistics, public health, sociology, geography, education. They also come from many countries such as Kosovo, Jamaica, Mexico, Moldova, Mozambique, Indonesia, the Philippines and Jordan. Many of them will be in attendance to bring us up‐to‐date on the state of early child development monitoring and health promotion in both developing and developed countries, and to demonstrate now such monitoring can promote early child development.

Pathways to Resilience II: The Social Ecology of Resilience

Date: 
Juin 7, 2010 - Juin 10, 2010
Location: 
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.
