OVWA Quarterly Membership Training

Please join OVWA and Miriam Mohamed, Executive Director, Ohio Network of Children's Advocacy Centers

Declare Yourself: Developing and Sustaining Effective Multi-Disciplinary Team Practices

This OVWA Member training will help participants understand the role and purpose of an MDT,  the benefits of using MDT’s for both victims of trauma and professionals working with trauma victims,  the role of the MDT in relation to resiliency from trauma, and will increase their competency in the understanding of collaborative MDT’s and practical applications for creating an MDT in their own community.

Before joining ONCAC, Miriam Mohamed served as Coordinator of Kids’ Place, Licking County’s accredited child advocacy center, and Kids’ Team, a multidisciplinary team that responds to child abuse, from November 2012 until December 2016.  As a member of Kids’ Team, she provided case coordination and victim advocacy services to all child victims and their families.  Miriam previously served as the Program Director of Girls Inc. of the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area before moving overseas to volunteer with the Education Development Center on a United States Agency for International Development-funded youth development program.  Miriam received a bachelor’s degree in Biology and Peace, Justice, and Conflict Studies from Goshen College in Goshen, Indiana.
