May 26, 2022 – Safety Beyond Our Doors: The Role of Advocacy in Assessing Risk

Advanced Victim Advocacy Virtual Trainings

MAY 26, 2022 (Thursday)
8:30 A.M. – 10:30 A.M. (MST)

LIVE via Zoom

Training Description

One role of advocacy is to walk with the child and family through all the systems and processes that come into play after a child discloses abuse and help identify how those systems can support and provide safety for the family. Advocates respond to the self-identified needs of the family and are integral in helping the family create long-term safety. However, advocates run the risk of putting more pressure and “to-do” lists for the family with added assessments and plans. This workshop will clearly lay out how the advocate can provide true safety support for the family and work with the team to meet safety needs.
