Successful completion of mental health treatment is closely associated with caregiver participation in treatment (McPherson et al, 2012). However, less than 50% of families who are scheduled to participate in therapy services attend their first appointment (Harrison et al, 2004). This webinar will aim to focus on common barriers that present for families in their attempts to engage in therapeutic services. Further, the research of McKay et al. related to caregiver engagement will be discussed and applied to the child advocacy center setting.
