SHARJAH, 5th June, 2023 (WAM) — The Child Safety Department (CSD) has organised a specialised training programme titled “The Methods of Listening and Dealing with Child Victims of Violence”, marking the inaugural Kanaf programme in conjunction with the International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression.

The CSD is continuing its efforts to launch “Kanaf,” an interdisciplinary and multi-agency child protection centre that provides prompt legal, psychological, and social support to child victims of physical and sexual abuse.

The first session featured Dr. Bunna Buzboun from Bahrain, bringing 30 years of experience in diagnosis, psychological, and pedagogic treatment. The session’s objective is to facilitate the recruitment of psychological and legal experts, as well as representatives from government entities focused on child protection. This collaborative effort aims to strengthen the child safety and protection landscape within Kanaf’s framework.

During the session, which saw the participation of childcare training staff and experts, Dr. Buzboun presented unique mechanisms and methods for handling child victims of violence. This facilitated the exchange of practical and scholarly expertise, as well as knowledge on effective communication with children who have experienced any form of abuse.

The session focused on advancements in medicine, psychotherapy, and mentorship in the context of protecting children who have fallen victim to abuse.

Kanaf was established under the directives of H.H. Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, wife of H.H. the Ruler of Sharjah and Chairperson of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs (SCFA). In 2022, Her Highness issued an administrative decision to form the higher committee of Kanaf, which is an important step forward in the emirate’s exceptional journey towards ensuring children’s protection from any type or form of abuse that could harm them, impact their future or disrupt community’s ethics and values.
