Course Description: As the victim advocacy field and CAC victim support and advocacy services evolve, Victim Advocates' role and responsibilities have become more complex and challenging. As Victim Advocates are central to guiding children and families on paths to safety, healing and justice, they require opportunities for professional development, effective supervision and ongoing support. Critical to such efforts is the establishment of peer support forums that can provide ongoing learning, networking, resource sharing and support.

This webinar will examine the purpose of support/peer review initiatives, and present recommendations for using The toolkit: Developing Victim Advocate Peer Support Toolkit forum to guide decision making regarding the mission, organization, structure, and objectives of a Victim Advocacy Peer Support.
