Advocates are uniquely situated to see the whole picture of the MDT response to child abuse and the impact on the child and family. While we frequently discuss the role and perspective of other MDT members, the advocate perspective is often misunderstood. The presenter will introduce 6 guiding principles for advocates that can help them work with families, create system and social change and develop meaningful programs within their CAC. Strategies for implementing the guiding principles into your Child Advocacy Center and advocacy practice will be discussed including examples for every day advocacy. These principles are best practices that were developed from the lived experiences of victims and advocates throughout years of success and failure working through the system. Currently being used by many domestic and sexual assault advocates, the presenter will apply these principles for use within child advocacy centers.
