Partners of the Marshfield Child Advocacy Center come from community agencies with common goals of improving investigations, prosecution, and healing of child abuse through the collaboration of expert representatives including but not limited to:

  • Physicians
  • Social Workers
  • Child Protective Services
  • Law Enforcement
  • District Attorney’s
  • Victim Advocates
  • Behavioral Health Therapists
  • Education Specialists
  • Recreational therapists

Together, these partners form a multidisciplinary team (MDT) that is designed to work collaboratively on cases of suspected abuse in order to maximize the integrity and outcome of the investigation while providing the best possible experience for the child and their families.

Multidisciplinary Case Review
In addition to ongoing communication during active investigations, members of the MDT from Wood and Clark Counties meet monthly to review local cases. This meeting is hosted and facilitated by the MCAC with goals of improving processes for investigations through discussion of cases, reinforcing the value of member agency roles, and providing direction on varying topics in child abuse and neglect.
