GEOFF SIDOLI, MSW, LCSW; Executive Director, Mountain CAC
Multidisciplinary Teams (MDT) have long been utilized to form strategies for the sexual abuse of children by adults, but studies show that between 25%-40% of alleged child sexual abuse cases referred to CACs are initiated by a child. MDTs often find themselves in a unique position to determine and guide services for youth with problematic sexual behavior but are often inadequately prepared to determine their heterogeneous developmental and contextual needs. The focus of this training will be to examine how MDTs can provide the systemic needs of this population and how they can form best practices for youth with problematic sexual behavior by developing policies and procedures that are empirically supported and informed.
