18th Annual Community Response to Child Abuse Conference

The Center for the Prevention of Child Maltreatment (CPCM) is honored to collaborate with Child’s Voice and the Unified Judicial System (UJS) Court Improvement Program (CIP) to host the 18th Annual Community Response to Child Abuse. Professionals, advocates, and community members will learn skills and tools to better respond to cases of child maltreatment. We are honored to help create stronger children and families for South Dakota.

More than 4,000 South Dakotan children from all socio-economic and race groups experience sexual abuse every year.


The Center for the Prevention of Child Maltreatment focuses on delivering education, outreach and research geared toward eliminating child sexual abuse and maltreatment in South Dakota. Whether we're training mandatory reporters, helping victims and their families navigate the criminal justice system or providing data analysis assistance to state agencies, we're committed to stopping the cycle of child abuse.
