MDT Enhancement Program Orientation


This introductory multidisciplinary team training spans one (1) day and is specifically designed for staff members who will be integrally involved in both implementation and oversight of the MDT Enhancement Program (MEP) at a children's advocacy center that is new to the MEP in FY18 as well as new staff members who are responsible for MEP activities at a children’s advocacy center that already participates in the MEP beginning in FY16 or FY17.

Participants will gain specialized knowledge of the SWI process including receiving, reviewing, and referring Statewide Intake (SWI) Reports and records retention as well as strategies for strengthening MDT communication, coordination, and collaboration throughout the life of a case. The curriculum is developed to provide a strong, comprehensive foundation for ongoing MEP work.

Format: This orientation program includes lecture and discussion.

September 7th 10:00am-4:00pm

Prerequisites: Current employment with or contractor of a local children’s advocacy center in the state of Texas participating in the MDT Enhancement Program.

Approval Process: Registering for this training does not guarantee acceptance. Applicants will be notified of their final approval status at a minimum of three (3) weeks prior to the start of the training.* It is highly recommended to secure hotel accommodations at the time of application in order to procure the best rate; hotel availability decreases and rates increase as the training dates near.

*Offering quality, professional training in a classroom environment is a key priority for CACTX. 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 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.
