October 3 @ 9:00 am - October 5 @ 3:00 pm
Based on the nationally-recognized ChildFirst® Forensic Interview Protocol, this training provides a purposeful and legally defensible process for conducting expanded forensic interviews with children who may not succeed in a standard, single interview due to trauma, developmental, special needs or other complicating issues, including polyvictimization. This training will teach the expanded interview process as well as research supporting multiple, non-duplicative interviews with child victims and witnesses. This training is appropriate for multidisciplinary team members that have successfully completed a nationally recognized forensic interviewing protocol.
- Discuss the research supporting a multiple non-duplicative forensic interview.
- Teach the ChildFirst® Expanded Forensic Interview process.
- Students will practice the techniques learned.
