Child maltreatment is a social and public health concern with far-reaching consequences for the child, family, society, and the economy. Given that the Human Capability Approach is a normative and evaluative framework to measure human development that captures the quality of life, wellbeing, human dignity, flourishing, human rights, and social justice, the research explored a conceptual basis for valorizing child maltreatment as a capability deprivation using Nussbaum's list of 10 central human capabilities. It adapted the Netherlands NPM 2010 Child Maltreatment survey as measurements. The webinar will present the national school survey findings amongst 895 children between 12-17 years in Aruba
