MULTIDISCIPLINARY TEAM (MDT) APPROACH
Each year, countless children suffer from abuse and neglect. All too often, they have been abused and victimized by the very adults responsible for protecting them. Clearly, child abuse is a community problem. No single agency, individual, or discipline has the necessary knowledge, skills, or resources to provide the assistance that abused children need and deserve.
At the Gordon County Child Advocacy Center (GCCAC), we work within a multidisciplinary framework following our local child abuse protocols for Gordon County. The GCCAC offers support and coordinates the efforts of a multidisciplinary team (MDT) of professionals, consisting of:
In the neutral setting of the CAC, team members can collaborate on strategies that will assist investigators and prosecutors without creating further trauma for the child. This innovative multidisciplinary approach significantly increases the likelihood of a successful outcome in the judicial system and long-term healing for the abused child.
