    Participants in this training will learn how Mindy Jackson and the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center grew their advocacy program from a staff of one to a staff of 16, as well as the challenges and successes they encountered during this process.  Mindy will explain the advocate’s role both in the CAC and on the MDT.  This training will include an overview of their program and a deeper dive into specific areas.  Mindy will discuss the services their advocacy program offers and she will provide examples that the participants can take back to their own agencies. 

    This will also include a 1-hour overview regarding the Idaho Court System, including information to help guide non-offending caregivers through the criminal justice system.

    This training is intended for Advocates that work alongside child abuse investigations.  This includes victim witness coordinators from law enforcement and prosecutors offices.

The Idaho Network of Children’s Advocacy Centers hosts many conferences and training events throughout the year for professionals who work with Child Advocacy Centers and Child Abuse Multidisciplinary Teams. These events feature top medical experts, mental health experts, law enforcement officials, and other professionals who share their unique perspective with event attendees. Some training sessions revolve around a common theme, while others offer hands-on training using real case files. We recommend these programs as viable educational opportunities for anyone involved in the operations of a Children’s Advocacy Centers.
