The Family Advocate: Providing Support to Non-Offending Caregivers (Poster Session 3)
Parental support on the part of non-offending caregivers can be inconsistent or ambivalent due at least in part to the level of distress experienced by the parent. An early intervention model developed by the National Children's Advocacy Center, the Family Advocate program serves non-offending caregivers of children in cases where sexual abuse or severe physical abuse has been substantiated. This program addresses the needs of the non-offending caregiver as a means of providing additional support to the child. The workshop describes the services provided and reviews initial outcome data on non-offending caregivers enrolled in Family Advocates.
