At the Georgia Center for Child Advocacy, we work within a multidisciplinary framework following our local child abuse protocols for Fulton and DeKalb Counties. Our MDT consists of professionals from different fields who come together to ensure the most effective coordinated response is obtained for every child and family. Members of the MDT include law enforcement, child protective services (DFCS), prosecutors, medical staff, therapists, victim advocates and staff at the Georgia Center for Child Advocacy.
The staff of the Georgia Center for Child Advocacy joins with other teams members to facilitate the multidisciplinary approach to intervention, investigation, prosecution and treatment of abuse. Child abuse is a problem that an entire community must address together. No one profession or agency has all of the knowledge, skills and resources to address the needs of these children and their families.
