Description

Professionals working in social pediatrics encounter children suffering from complex health problems: language delays, motor deficits, poor social skills, severe learning disabilities and behavioural problems. But hidden beneath these difficulties are often sources of stress that result in a violation of one or more of the child’s fundamental rights.

In order to ensure a child’s full health and well-being, professionals in social pediatrics rely on, among other things, the Convention on the Rights of the Child and its global intervention strategy for ensuring all children can develop to their full potential. In this sense, the Convention is an indispensable tool for enriching the practice of social pediatrics and influences the actions it takes to help children in difficult living conditions.

This online training is an introduction to the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Participants familiarize themselves with the articles of the Convention, learn how these form the basis of the Seven Principles of the Rights of the Child that are used in CSP, and learn to make a link between children’s needs and potential violations of their rights.

  • Link the articles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child to the Seven Principles of the Rights of the Child that are used in CSP
  • Describe the Seven Principles of the Rights of the Child
