Minnesota Children’s Alliance (Alliance) is excited to host CAC Advocacy with Vulnerable Adult Populations, with Kylee Pass, advocacy and prevention program coordinator with First Witness 9 – 11 a.m., Thursday, April 20, 2022, via Zoom HealthCare.
Children’s Advocacy Centers (CAC) historically provide developmentally appropriate, trauma-informed care to children and adolescents, and their families. Vulnerable adults who report sexual abuse or assault also benefit from this holistic model of care. This training supports victim advocates working in CAC’s that currently or are considering supporting vulnerable adults in a multidisciplinary team response. Using the Six Core Principles of Social Change Advocacy, participants will learn how to meet the unique needs of this population. The training will cover institutional supports and barriers, and how to implement the systems change model within the CAC model.
- Participants will gain knowledge and understanding of the history of advocating for vulnerable adult populations.
- Participants will learn how to ground advocacy for vulnerable adult populations in the Six Core Principles of Social Change Advocacy.
- Participants will gain an understanding of how to advocate for the inclusion of vulnerable adults into their multidisciplinary team’s CAC model.
Kylee Pass currently serves as the advocacy and prevention program coordinator for First Witness Child Advocacy Center (CAC). Kylee also serves as a national level trainer and facilitates various advocacy training opportunities including a National Children’s Alliance accredited training created to help other families and child advocates around the nation build upon their advocacy skills and perspectives.
