Multidisciplinary Teams

The Child Protection Teams: Defenses for the Falsely Accused
LeRoy Schultz*
Abstract: Teams are a medical concept, aimed at healing, not an evidence gathering process that will be directly applicable to a court's requirements. Questions about team processes and team findings are suggested for both lawyers and expert witnesses, and are designed to carefully examine a team's proceedings to assess their weight and reliability.

http://www.ipt-forensics.com/journal/volume1/j1_4_3.htm

"There are four types of teams. These are (1) the hospital-based team, (2) the state consultation team, (3) the rural team, and (4) the treatment team."

Native American Topic-Specific Monograph Series

http://216.109.125.130/search/cache?p=m ... 1&.intl=us

"One of biggest difficulties in child abuse cases is effective criminal prosecution. Only a small percentage of reported cases of child maltreatment are ever criminally prosecuted. The difficulties in successfully
prosecuting child abuse cases are well known. These difficulties include lack of witnesses, victim
unwillingness to testify and/or retracting their disclosure of the abuse, lack of physical evidence, prosecutorial
discomfort with trying child abuse cases, etc. It is often the criminal justice system that is considered a "weak
link" because of the limited number of cases which go to court.

As communities become aware of the effect of child abuse and neglect, the communities may be disappointed in the limited number of cases that are criminally prosecuted. In response to issues of child
abuse and neglect, communities may develop MDTs to make sure that all cases receive adequate
prosecutorial review (or attention by the prosecutors office whether tribal, federal or state). To insure that
such review takes place, it is vital that the appropriate prosecutor(s) be consistent participants at the MDT
meetings."
