In collaboration with BJA, the PRC has assigned coaches to each site to provide guidance on the most effective strategies for delivering the training and technical assistance proposed in their BJA grant and in identifying TTA that will be most effective in achieving their goals. In addition, the PRC coaches will be monitoring site activities in order to identify effective practices for eliminating sexual abuse that may have applicability to other agencies across the country. Information on effective practices will be posted on the PRC’s website library.
