Spearheaded by Drs. Desmond Runyan, John Fluke and Carol Runyan, The Kempe Center has developed a series of courses in child abuse research and evaluation in order to expand the researchers and evidence-supported programs in this field. Our aims are to better prepare researchers to apply for NIH and other support for their work and to ensure that practitioners are using the best evidence available to structure interventions and are contributing the evidence base through well-designed evaluations. Instructors include faculty from Kempe and a number of other leading research organizations and universities. The courses include lectures, discussion groups and mentoring by instructors and other visiting professionals.
We are excited to announce that the August 2021 session will be offered in an interactive virtual format to accommodate the health and safety of our participants. Registration will open March 2021!
