The Regional Children's Advocacy Centers are partnering to host virtual MDT Facilitator Peer Forums. These forums provide a space for MDT 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 MDT facilitation, and then participants are placed in Zoom breakout rooms for self-facilitated, small-group discussions and resource sharing. At the end, participants are brought back together in one large group for a Q&A with regional staff.
These forums are open nationally to individuals with a primary or shared responsibility for facilitating the success of the MDT - i.e., tending to the relationships, communication and accountability of the MDT at a children's advocacy center.
- Jordan Benning, MEd, Project Director - MRCAC
- Tony DeVincenzo, Training Specialist - NRCAC
- Greg Flett, Senior Program Manager - SRCAC
- Joyce Prusak, Training Specialist - WRCAC
As a result of this forum, participants will:
- Gain foundational knowledge and skills for effective team facilitation
- Apply learning to practice through peer discussions
- Connect with Peers throughout the US
The MDT Facilitator Peer Forums will be held from 11:00am - 12:30pm PT | 12:00 - 1:30pm MT | 1:00 - 2:30pm CT | 2:00 - 3:30 pm ET.
