Supporting sexually abused children

06 February 2013

The Netherlands Children's Welfare Stamps Foundation has allocated € 150,000 to a project concerning sexually abused children who have been placed in foster families. The aim of the project is to gather together knowledge about the experiences, needs and expertise of the foster families caring for these children. This knowledge will be used to compile an e-toolkit for foster families. The research is being led by Prof. Hans Grietens.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
