CAC Leaders Focusing on Strengthening MDTs


This advanced multidisciplinary team training spans two (2) days and is specifically designed for Executive Directors or comparable management-level staff of a children's advocacy center who oversee partner agency relationships.

Participants will explore strategies for evaluating the strengths and challenges of the MDT(s) and enhancing participation of team members at all levels. Coursework provides insight into identifying system issues that impact cases and team dynamics; promoting collaborative decision-making; cultivating healthy, productive methods for addressing conflict; and engaging in difficult but important conversations. The curriculum focuses on developing a collaborative perspective and cultivating vital leadership skills necessary to strengthen partner agency relationships and ensure an effective, comprehensive multidisciplinary response throughout all aspects of a children’s advocacy center.

This training is designed for CAC Executive Directors and CAC Directors of  Umbrella Organizations. Other CAC Management Staff involved in MDT/Program Services should attend our next Strengthening MDTs training (date TBD). 

This highly interactive program includes open discussion, hands on activities, and role play.

Current employment as an Executive Director of a local children’s advocacy center or a CAC Director of an umbrella organization in the state of Texas.

Approval Process: Registering for this training offering does not guarantee acceptance.* Applicants will be notified of their final registration status at a minimum of three (3) weeks prior to the start of the training.

*Offering quality, professional training in a classroom environment is a key priority for our organization. We feel this format is the most conducive to effective learning as it allows for small group activities, one-on-one coaching, and ample opportunity for Q&A. However, given the inherent size of classroom training, we have to carefully manage the registration process. Our goal is to ensure that participants have timely access to the training offerings they are in need of in order to do their important jobs effectively. In reviewing registrations, our process is to assess both the registrant CAC’s needs as well as the registrant’s completion of course prerequisites.
