Team Facilitation Skills Intensive

The task of facilitating a multidisciplinary team can be incredibly rewarding, but not without its challenges. Playing a vital role on the team, a skilled facilitator can help the MDT to function smoothly and efficiently. From navigating conflict to ensuring the best possible services for children and families, a facilitator often has to wear many hats.

Team Facilitation Skills Intensive is designed to empower facilitators with the skills, knowledge, and confidence needed to effectively coordinate the MDT response to child abuse in their community.
