Leading Engaged Teams title banner

Currently, many multidisciplinary teams are absent of a good facilitator, and/or those that exist are not rooted in a shared philosophy and understanding of what a strong/effective team is and how the facilitator plays a critical role on that team.

A team facilitator is a neutral leader who tends to the relationships, communication and accountability of the MDT while fostering an inclusive environment to improve outcomes for children and families impacted by abuse.

We invite team facilitators to join us for a learning experience about the roots of effective teams and how facilitators can strengthen them, ultimately creating better outcomes for kids and families.


  • Course Format: Two and a half days of classroom learning cover three modules: Foundations, Skill Building, and Team Resilience. An online community will be available for pre-work and follow up, as well as continued support and learning.
