The Regional Children’s Advocacy Centers are partnering to host bi-monthly virtual MDT Facilitator Peer Forums to provide a space for MDT Facilitators to connect with their peers across the country doing similar work.

Each forum starts in a large-group format to review a topic related to MDT facilitation, and then participants are placed in Zoom breakout rooms for self-facilitated, small-group discussions and resource sharing. At the end, participants are brought back together in one large group for a Q&A with regional staff.
