    • 21 Sep 2017
    • 1:00 PM - 5:30 PM
    • 715 N. Euclid Avenue, Bay City, MI 48706


    This training session is only intended for the CAC and MDT members of Bay & Arenac Counties and the CAN Council of GLBR. 

    Note: There is a separate training session for Saginaw County MDT at the CAN Council GLBR Saginaw location.

    If you are interested in having this training facilitated for your CAC/ MDT, click here!


    CAC and MDT members who work with abused children often emphasize the importance of building resiliency in these young victims. However, they sometimes overlook the need to develop resiliency in themselves. If providers are unable to cope with the difficult situations inherent in their work, they are susceptible to secondary traumatic stress or burnout. To maintain a healthy perspective, then, providers must learn how to build their own individual resiliency. But it is also the ethical responsibility of the organization to create an environment that supports and encourages this critical strength for the effective functioning of the CAC/MDT.

    The "Building Resiliency in MDTs" training was adapted with permission from the "Building Resiliency in Child Abuse Organizations" curriculum developed by the Office for Victims of Crime.


    Learning Objectives:

    • Identify the five core elements of resiliency.
    • Describe how the core elements relate to the organizational resiliency model.
    • Describe ways organizations can implement strategies through the organizational resiliency model.
    • Identify challenges to resiliency in your MDT.
    • Create strategies to build capacity for resiliency in your MDT.
    • Create an action plan for implementing strategies for building resiliency.


    Facilitator:

    • Maggie Devlin, Program Director, MINCA

    This course has been approved by MCOLES and the Michigan Social Work CE Collaborative for 4.0 credit hours.
