The program implements the multi-disciplinary approach to provide more comprehensive case management services to child victims of abuse, especially sexual abuse.
The multi-disciplinary team is composed of social worker, counsellor, psychologist, teacher, house parents, lawyer, and medical doctor/nurses. The social worker takes responsibility for an “structured arrangement” of services to heal, rehabilitate, care for or seek change for the child victim. Each case typically involves three stages: assessment, intervention/treatment, and recovery. The social worker and the multi-disciplinary team conduct a weekly case conference to discuss, assess, and propose individualized treatment strategies for each child.
