Ending corporal punishment of children – A handbook for worship and gatherings

This resource offers prayers, reflections vigils and liturgies which promote non-violent adult-child relationships.  It can be used both privately and collectively and can be adapted for the local context or used to trigger ideas for further studies or reflections.

The handbook includes an introduction contextualising the materials within the obligations of governments under human rights law to protect children from all forms of corporal punishment. A final section outlines resources to support further development on the issue.
