DeSoto County Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) members showed their team spirit at our case review meeting today! Collaborative efforts among our team members are consistently used to enhance and improve investigations and responses to child abuse/neglect cases for the children and families we serve. What is an MDT and how does it work? When police or child protective services believe a child is being abused or neglected, the child is brought to the Healing Hearts Child Advocacy Center (HHCAC)—a safe, child-focused environment—by a caregiver or other “safe” adult. At the HHCAC, the child tells their story once to a trained interviewer who knows the right questions to ask in a way that does not not retraumatize the child. Then, a team that includes medical professionals, law enforcement, mental health, prosecution, child protective services, victim advocacy, and other professionals make decisions together about how to help the child based on the interview. HHCAC and our partners offer therapy and medical exams, plus courtroom preparation, victim advocacy, case management, and other services. This is called the multidisciplinary team (MDT) response and is a core part of the work of a Child Advocacy Center.
