  • 2. The Gundersen National Child Protection Training Center (Gundersen NCPTC) works to end all forms of child abuse, neglect and exploitation through training, education, advocacy, prevention and awareness, providing care and treatment for children, families and adult survivors. Since its inception in 2003, more than 100,000 child protection professionals have been trained in all 50 states and 17 countries. Training topics include: child abuse, investigations, forensic interviewing and multidisciplinary team training. Gundersen NCPTC actively strives to prepare future front-line professionals to recognize and report the abuse of children, through the implementation of Gundersen NCPTC model curricula. Furthermore, the staff provides technical assistance to child protection professionals and victim/survivor assistance on an ongoing basis. They also publish monthly and quarterly newsletters and distribute them to tens of thousands of child protection professionals. In February 2013, NCPTC merged with Gundersen Health System (GHS). Gundersen’s Integrated Center for Education enhances NCPTC’s ability to train professionals in the field. This premier conference facility offers: • The latest in communications technology • Distance learning capabilities • Support facilities and personnel on site • Seating for up to 225 people • A central and beautiful location in southwest Wisconsin While this partnership brings change, Gundersen NCPTC’s mission remains the same. In fact, it means Gundersen NCPTC is that much stronger and that much closer to its goal of ending child abuse. 1
  • 3. Training Centers Gundersen NCPTC’s main training center is located on the Winona State University (WSU) campus. This state-of-the-art complex includes five mock court rooms, four forensic interview training rooms and a mock house in which simulated child abuse investigations are conducted. As part of the collaboration with WSU, Gundersen NCPTC staff and WSU faculty have developed the model undergraduate minor curriculum and certificate program entitled Child Advocacy Studies (CAST). NorthWest Arkansas Community College (NWACC) currently serves as Gundersen NCPTC's Southern Region Training Center. The Melba Shewmaker Center opens January 2014 and includes mock court rooms, interactive video and flexible use space. This center will provide training, publications and the CAST curriculum implementation, as well as technical and forensic interviewing assistance, specifically to the 15 southern U.S. states. New Mexico State University (NMSU) serves as Gundersen NCPTC’s Southwestern Region Training Center. NMSU is an ideal partner due to the university’s extensive community outreach, the quality of its CAST curriculum and NMSU’s experience in delivering training and services over large, mostly rural distances, as well as its experience in working with underrepresented and limited resource populations. NMSU’s region includes New Mexico, Arizona, Southern California and West Texas at its initial launch, and may expand to serve other states.
