Trainings at STCAC

I’m very excited to report that child psychologist, Dee BigFoot, Phd., will provide a training Monday and Tuesday at our Southern Tier Child Advocacy Center. Dr. BigFoot will teach center multidisciplinary team members how to present the trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) model to enhance its effectiveness for Native American children. Unfortunately, due to space constraints at the center, we had to limit the training to 15 participants. Dr. BigFoot directs the Native American Programs at the Center on Child Abuse and Neglect at the Oklahoma University Health Science Center. She is also director of the Indian Country Child Trauma Center where she was instrumental in the cultural adaptation of evidence-based treatment interventions. Then on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, we will offer training at the center on the revised New York State Forensic Interviewing Best Practices. I’m very grateful that we are able to offer these world-class trainings to area clinicians to enhance services to abused children and their families.

The list of sponsors for our September 19 Capes and Crowns 5K and 1K fun run and walk keeps growing. The Cutco Foundation is our diamond sponsor, our gold sponsor is Dresser-Rand, silver sponsors include The Iroquois Group, Olean General Hospital, Mix 101.5 and the Wellsville Daily Reporter and our bronze sponsors include the Allegany County District Attorney’s Office, Community Bank, Five Star Bank, Rick Bokman, Resiner Law Group, Tasta Pizza, Olean Medical Group, Trans Am and DJ Si, Olean Family YMCA and Team Minard Productions. We’re also receiving a lot of support from the community and advice from organizers of other charity run/walks. We’re encouraging groups of five or more from organizations, families or friends to enter as teams with a theme. The theme can be about their favorite superheroes and/or princesses or about their company or organization. Teams of supervillains will be welcomed as well. Anyone wearing something that represents a superhero/princess/group will be eligible to win prizes. Everyone who signs up as a team member can register for $20 instead of $25. The race will be held Saturday, September 19, at St. Bonaventure University. To register, please visit www.sthcs.org.
