Happens in Therapy
workshop is intended for forensic interviewers, police
officers, CPS workers, medical personnel, family court
workers, attorneys, judges, social workers, and anyone else
dealing with abused children.
professionals involved in a child abuse case have different
roles and purposes. Mental health treatment is an integral
part of that multi-disciplinary team. There are many
misconceptions about how, where and what is therapy. Should
clinical services even be part of the team or do they just
complicate things? What makes a “good” therapist and what
feedback should you expect. This workshop will give an
overview of how clinical services benefit the
multi-disciplinary team and enhance the effectiveness of your
role on the team.
Different types of therapy as well as the goals of therapeutic
interventions will be reviewed. We will also discuss common
problems and issues children who have been abused face and
what can be done about it. The lecture/ discussion format will
allow for dialogue and feedback. Participants will be
encouraged to participate in the discussion of the issues they
may experience in their settings.
