Adult Protection Multidisciplinary Team Workshop

    Currently, there are no offerings for this course.

    It will bring together diverse stakeholders from around North Carolina to begin the process of forming and developing adult protection multidisciplinary teams (MDTs).  

    Participants are encouraged to apply in teams and teams will be county-based.  Each MDT may send up to seven people from their community to participate in the workshop. The core of each team should include representatives from the office of the clerk of superior court, the county department of social services, the district attorney's office, and law enforcement. Other team members may include guardian ad litem attorneys, public guardians, and representatives from hospitals, adult care homes, housing authorities, financial institutions, long term care ombudsman, faith communities, and mental health agencies.

    On Day 1 of the workshop, participants will learn about MDTs, the system of adult protection in North Carolina, and engage in team-building activities.  On Day 2, participants will work in their teams to develop tools to support their community response to adult abuse, neglect, and exploitation.
