The Children’s Advocacy Center of Hampshire County believes the whole community has a responsibility to keep children safe. Through outreach and training, the CAC raises awareness about child abuse and provides professionals and community members with the skills to help children and families when abuse has occurred.
Our trainings focus on the following:
- Prevention: Increasing awareness and understanding of child abuse and fostering safety;
- Intervention: Providing information on recognizing the signs, responding to disclosure, reporting abuse, and the multidisciplinary team response;
- Treatment & Therapy: Increasing skills and knowledge for professionals who are helping victims recover and heal.
