Utilizing the Polyvictimization Assessment Tool: Frontline Staff’s Experience

Download Webinar Handouts

The Polyvictimization Assessment Tool requires a high level of training and engagement from frontline staff to be successfully implemented in a Family Justice/Multi-Agency Center. Frontline staff in this Initiative engaged in deep conversation prior to implementation, discussing trauma-informed practices, training on community violence, and even vicarious trauma. Speakers from three of the Demonstration Initiative sites share about the frontline staff's experience utilizing the Polyvictimization Assessment Tool at their Center. This webinar explores the practical approaches frontline staff used to incorporate and tailor the Polyvictimization Assessment Tool, as well as provide insight into the responses clients and staff had to the Tool. Furthermore, speakers will share the challenges they faced and the routes they took to overcome obstacles along the way.
