Session 5A: Why is it Hard to be a Team Player? Exploring Good Practices in Developing Cross-Agency Relationships in CACs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

While multi-disciplinary responses to child abuse have been recommended as best practice, developing effective and collaborative ways of working are extremely difficult. This workshop will present the findings from an online survey conducted by the Crimes against Children Research Center and the Australian Centre for Child Protection about the factors that directors of CACs in the United States attribute to the successful development of collaborative relationships. It will explore what processes facilitate collaboration and whether different structures and funding arrangements impact collaboration. We will provide time to brainstorm and share ideas about developing, maintaining, and evaluating cross-agency relationships in CACs.
