These forums allow multidisciplinary team facilitators to connect with their peers across the country doing similar work. Each forum starts in a large-group format to review a topic related to multidisciplinary team facilitation. Then participants are placed in Zoom breakout rooms for self-facilitated, smaller group discussions and resource sharing. At the end, participants are brought back together in one large group for a question-and-answer session with regional staff.
These forums are open nationally to individuals with a primary or shared responsibility for facilitating the success of multidisciplinary teams at a children's advocacy center.
Only child abuse professionals who serve in the role of a multidisciplinary team facilitator for a children's advocacy center are eligible to participate in these forums.
