Course title: Core Concepts for Team Facilitation

A team facilitator is a neutral leader who tends to the relationships, communication and accountability of the multidisciplinary team while fostering an inclusive environment to improve outcomes for children and families impacted by abuse. While the role of a team facilitator can be quite complex, we believe there are essential skills, mindsets, and areas of knowledge which are key to effective team facilitation. These components have been combined into the course, Core Concepts for Team Facilitation, and we have developed two ways for you to engage with the course material.
