Building Community for Maltreatment Response.
The Child & Adult Advocacy Studies (CAAST) certificate focuses on interdisciplinary, ethical, realistic, and culturally sensitive content that provides professionals working with vulnerable populations a foundation for responding to maltreatment. Students will learn about the various disciplinary responses to maltreatment and will develop a multidisciplinary understanding of the most efficient responses. Students completing the courses in this certificate will be better equipped to accomplish the work of related agencies (social work, criminal justice, nursing, etc.) as they advocate on behalf of victims and survivors of maltreatment.
