Brief Overview: This presentation will focus on how Dr. Siders, with staff from the Traverse Bay Children's Advocacy Center, worked to design and implement trauma-informed trainings with law enforcement partners. Additionally, the work and challenges related to supporting law enforcement in being more open to a trauma-informed lens when discussing clients and families in teams meeting for forensic interviews and case review meetings will be discussed.
