A Multi-Disciplinary Team Model

With more than 800 reports of child abuse in Bucks County each year, the Bucks County Children’s Advocacy Center provides a setting in which children can receive timely collaborative services from agencies mandated by law to investigate reports of child abuse.

The predominant approach to child abuse investigations at the Children’s Advocacy Center is the multi-disciplinary team model. This approach supports enhanced communications between the various agencies that respond to allegations of child abuse.

Transforming the system, Bucks County Children’s Advocacy Center provides a child-friendly setting where a skilled team of professionals come together under one roof to investigate serious child abuse allegations, conduct forensic interviews aiding in the prosecution of offenders, and connect children and family with therapy and victim assistance services -- always keeping the best interest of the child in mind.
