Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT)
DCC coordinates a Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) of professionals from county agencies to work together in the investigations, prosecutions and treatment of child abuse and neglect. Together these professionals conduct collaborative and coordinated investigations that prioritize the child’s safety, wellbeing and resilience.
At our center, we host meetings to review cases during which all team members discuss the best interests of the child and families moving forward in order to form a collaborative plan.
Dorchester Children's Center also host an Annual Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect as a free specialized training to team members relevant to this line of work.
