Community social pediatrics (CSP) integrates medicine, law and the social sciences. It identifies sources of stress that negatively impact the health and development of children in situations of vulnerability. Supported by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, it determines when the rights of the child are not being respected.
The CSP approach is based on a collaborative relationship with the child and adults involved in the their life, with the goal of maintaining the child on a trajectory of health and well-being
- identifying the child’s needs and the sources of stress impacting their well-being
- coming up with coherent and concrete solutions with the active participation of the child and their family
- building a protective circle around the child
You! CSP is for any professional in health, law, social sciences or education who is committed to helping children whose development is compromised by difficult living conditions.
