A Multidisciplinary Team reflects the community’s coordinated response to allegations of child abuse and maltreatment. The goal of a multidisciplinary team approach is to reduce the number of times a child has to disclose their experience and to ensure that the child’s needs are met holistically.
The Warren Washington C.A.R.E. Center is responsible for coordinating the team of partners who are involved in the child abuse investigation process.
The work that is done at the Warren Washington C.A.R.E. Center is truly a team effort. We recognize that each agency holds a piece of the puzzle when dealing with the complex needs of a family navigating trauma. The members of the multidisciplinary team specialize in different aspects of childhood trauma and many have made it their life’s work to help child victims of abuse.
Our multidisciplinary team includes medical professionals, local and state law enforcement agencies, mental health providers, prosecution, child protective services, victim advocates, and other professionals in the child protection field.
