Family Advocacy 201: Enhanced Skills for Comprehensive Advocacy Services


Family Advocacy 201 is a two-day course designed to provide advocates with specialized knowledge and skills that will equip them to offer a broader array of support services to children and their non-offending caregivers. Topics include: Understanding Trauma, Trauma-Informed Services, Mental Health Services for CAC Clients, Medical Evaluations in Child Abuse Cases, Medical Accompaniment, The Advocate’s Role on the Team, Overview of the Criminal Justice System and CPS System, Court Education, Support, and Accompaniment, Protective Orders, and Risk Assessment and Safety Planning.

Prerequisites: Completion of Family Advocacy 101. It is recommended that advocates attend Family Advocacy 201 at least eight weeks after completing Family Advocacy 101

Approval Process: Registrants will be notified of approval status after registration deadline, approximately one month prior to training. 

Offering quality, professional training in a classroom environment is a key priority for our organization, and we feel that this format is the most conducive to effective learning. Our format allows for small groups, one-on-one coaching and ample 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 sessions 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.
