Lonneke Buijteweg en Maaike Brunekreef

Lonneke and Maaike are members of their hospital task force Child abuse, neglect, domestic violence and elderly abuse. Together they strive to motivate people to think outside of the box and challenge health care workers to see the invisible. Past January they stood in front an international audience at the International Conference on Child and Family Maltreatment in San Diego with this talk. They’ll inspire you with the life story of Jeroen, a boy who has suffered both physical and emotional abuse and neglect but was able to rise above. They will share with you a short inspirational film about overcoming this abuse, and through personal cases, they will guide you through 3 steps which they believe help to see layers underneath and make the invisible visible.
