Our friends in the Massachusetts MDT world are offering Advanced Team Trainings on a variety of topics.

  • Engaging Caregivers for MDTs: Fri 3/17 9am-11am
    • After disclosure of child abuse, nonoffending caregivers
      have a range of reactions and responses from avoidance

      rationales for such varied responses and outlines
      supports and techniques to align with and respond to
      caregivers, regardless of their initial response.
  • Trauma Informed Supervision for MDTs: Fri 3/31 11am-1pm
    • Trauma-informed supervision is essential for agencies and
      supervisors to create a culture that normalizes and supports
      the impact for staff working with those impacted by trauma.
      Trauma-informed supervision can reduce and prevent
      vicarious trauma and turnover within an agency. While it may

      trauma- informed supervision will provide support, promote
      wellness, and encourage staff to seek support as needed.
