Everything a child sees and hears has an impact. From a baby mimicking their parents' facial expressions, to copying words and phrases as they grow older; kids are constantly imitating us and learning behaviors that will influence how they act in the future.

Our Family Advocate Interns had the opportunity to observe a Crimes Against Children Criminal Trial. Our interns observe a child abuse investigation from the very beginning and get to see our safety, healing, and justice philosophy all come together. Attending a trial allows our interns to see the final "piece" of the MDT "puzzle." Most importantly, our students can serve as a support system to our clients.

An infant's emotional development is highly linked to social interaction. Their caregiver is their initial interaction with the outside world. They will acquire trust and love for their caretakers if they are provided the right love and nurturing in their environment. Without it, they may develop mistrust and indifference toward people and the world. Link in bio to learn more.
