Morris County Multi-Disciplinary Team

The Multi-Disciplinary Team brings together various disciplines that coordinate their efforts so that every child and family deserves the justice, respect, and services they so desperately need.

In order to maximize services, minimize trauma, and ensure the needs of the victim and his/her family are being met, Deirdre’s House operates as part of a county-wide, multi-disciplinary system. The MDT consists of professionals from Deirdre’s House and Morris County agencies such as Law Enforcement, Child Protective Services, Medical and Mental Health Professionals, Victim Advocates, and Social Service Providers. MDT provides a coordinated and collaborative response by evaluating and providing comprehensive assessment and consultation in abuse cases. The team promotes coordination between agencies, identifies any service gaps, and ensures that the interests and goals of all concerned parties are addressed.
