The Boy Scouts of America is wrapping up a meeting of experts and leaders focusing on ways to identify and fight child abuse.

The group's second National Youth Protection Symposium began Monday in Grapevine and will conclude Tuesday.

In the first day of the closed-door meeting, about 100 participants from youth and faith groups heard from Scouting leaders and an expert who discussed how abuse can affect children their entire lives.

BSA says it has overhauled its policies and awareness programs for adult leaders, following decades of abuse cases that went unreported to authorities. Abuse complaints were kept in internal files that were disclosed in an Oregon lawsuit.
