In this support group, we checked in with CACs on their support group experiences, responded to a great question about how to support caregivers who want to talk about things not directly related to their child's abuse, and do a brief teaching on how to support caregivers whose family has experienced sibling abuse and how to find and encourage treatment for juvenile offenders.

In this support group, we check in with CACs on their existing groups and/or progress toward creating caregiver support groups. We also provide teaching on our overarching approach to supporting and responding to caregivers within the group setting including how to guide caregivers to look at what has happened and what is currently happening from both their perspective and from their child's perspective which are likely completely different experiences. This discussion lays a good foundation for support group leaders to use to respond regardless of the topic a caregiver raises.

CAC Support Group Recording - May 27, 2021

In this support group, we check in with CACs on their process of starting groups including their specific launch logistics as well as how to incorporate what they're learning into individual caregiver interactions. We provided a short training on the nuances of supporting different caregiver audiences such as how old the child was at disclosure and who the offender is. We did a deep dive on cases where children were abused by an extended family member.
