This seminar was on the Australian Child Maltreatment Study. It was hosted by Oranga Tamariki and the Roy McKenzie Centre for the Study of Families and Children.

The Australian Child Maltreatment Study (ACMS) is a five-year landmark study of the prevalence of child maltreatment. It's findings were launched in April 2023.

We were delighted to welcome Professor Ben Mathews, the lead researcher, to Wellington as our keynote speaker for our August 2023 seminar to discuss the studies findings.

This seminar also included a panel discussion. The panel featured Chief Social Worker Peter Whitcombe and Associate Professor Shayne Walker from Otago University’s School of Social and Community Work.
