Start Date (Cohort #5): March 1, 2022


Format: Virtual

Building Resilient Teams is an online guided discussion group to build resiliency within the multidisciplinary team (MDT). Participants, with guidance from a facilitator, will review the core elements of resiliency, identify strategies to grow capacity in each element, and consider how to implement the strategies within their MDT to encourage resiliency. Up to three discussion groups will be offered regionally in FY 2021-2022 to two-person teams from MDTs, with at least one individual from each team having a leadership role within the MDT to help encourage the successful implementation of new strategies.

Targeted Audience

Child abuse multidisciplinary team professionals, MDT Facilitators/Leaders. Teams of 2 individuals from each MDT will be invited, with at least one member who is in a leadership role on the MDT.

Learning Objectives 

As a result of this training, participants will:

      • Understand the impact of the work in the field of child abuse
      • Understand the five core elements of resiliency
      • Apply the concept of individual resiliency to their MDT
      • Walk away with an action plan for building their MDT/CAC’s capacity for resiliency in at least one of the core elements

WRCAC plans to host up to two cohorts (7 sessions for each cohort) between November 2021 and June 2022.  The time commitment per month is estimated at 4 hours, which includes 15-30 minutes of pre-meeting work and 75 minutes for each meeting. For individual benefit as well as the benefit of the entire group, participants are strongly encouraged to participate in all seven sessions.
