Do you work with vulnerable children in difficult living conditions?

The community social pediatrics model can enrich your practice.

What is community social pediatrics?

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

This involves:

  • 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. Because CSP integrates the perspectives and tools of different disciplines, it can help you make a real difference in the lives of these children.

What is the Community Social Pediatrics Institute?

The practice of CSP is attracting the attention of more and more communities and professionals working with children in vulnerable situations. In order to disseminate the knowledge it has acquired through shared experience and social innovation, the Fondation Dr Julien created the Community Social Pediatrics Institute. The Institute codifies practices and disseminates them through three types of training: Continuing Professional Development, University Training and Community Training. In this way, the Institute contributes to building a solid community of practice.
