This year's 2-day training is designed to have us come together as a
CAC/MDT community and a state movement.
Building and Maintaining Resilient Multi-Disciplinary Teams and Organizations
While the collaborative, multidisciplinary response to child abuse has always been the heart and soul of the children's advocacy center (CAC) movement, the need to focus on and fortify multidisciplinary teams (MDT) has never been greater. This year's CACC Summit will provide an opportunity for leaders across the state to explore strategies for strengthening and sustaining this core component of the CAC model and our teams.
