Child Abuse in Lebanon: Current Situation & Prevention - Free Online Interactive Discussion by I Have Learned Academy in Collaboration with the German Foundation: KAS -Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Lebanon office

Child abuse

Child abuse is a critical issue that has long been neglected in Lebanon. A study conducted showed that 1 out of 6 children in Lebanon is a victim of sexual abuse.  This refers to only 1 out of 4 types of abuse a child can be exposed to: physical, psychological, sexual, and neglect.

In this discussion we will state some of the cases that happened in Lebanon and how to prevent child abuse and act when any similar case happens.

Join this panel with 3 specialists to check what is the current situation and measures of preventions.

Riham Monzer

Child psychologist specialized in parental guidance and  university instructor. Holding a master’s degree with distinction in Clinical Psychology from the Lebanese University with a master’s thesis with the title “SandPlay Therapy As A Therapeutic Mediation And Its Effect On Abused Children.”

For the past twelve years, Riham has been working as a child psychologist and parental guidance expert in supporting children with psychological, emotional, and behavioral difficulties. She attended several national and international training workshops and sessions related to the world of children. She had the pleasure of presenting more than 100 lectures, training sessions, workshops, and webinars for parents, teachers, specialists, and caregivers. She believes that every child is unique and deserves to be raised properly and enjoy a happy and trauma-free childhood. That’s why she dedicated her career to help parents by giving them practical strategies, tips, and action plans to use during challenging moments so they can effectively manage their children's undesired behaviors and their relationships with them! In her 12+ years of experience, she concluded that effective Parenting is a set of skills that parents should learn; it’s not something that comes naturally and instinctually. The essence of her work relies on training parents to improve their communication skills with their children and minimize conflicts and meltdowns while simultaneously preventing children from having any short or long-term psychological effects.
