Nationally-recognized interview protocols have reached greater consensus about the essential components of a forensic interview, including the optimal use of different question types to elicit a children’s narrative descriptions. Consequently, we have good roadmaps and recommendations for children in active disclosure and who have adequate linguistic and cognitive abilities to speak about their remembered experiences. However, experienced and competent interviewers face challenges on a regular basis when attempting to interview children who do not meet this profile. NCAC’s Advanced Forensic Interviewing Training will begin with a review the principles of recognized “best practice” forensic interviewing; but will quickly move to addressing populations and allegations that place demands on forensic interviewers to adapt their practice to meet a variety of advanced challenges.
Topics included are:
Advanced Forensic Interviewing trainings also provide an opportunity for observation of each other’s recorded forensic interviews followed by discussion, feedback, and suggestions, participants are asked to bring recordings of challenging interviews to share with the class. Completion of a recognized Forensic Interviewing Basic Training and current Forensic Interviewing practice are required.Who Should Attend?This training is specifically designed for experienced interviewers who presently have responsibility for initial forensic interviews of children and who currently work with a multidisciplinary team. It is recommended that the interviewer have at least two years of interviewing experience and have attended a recognized basic training in Investigative/Forensic Interviewing (i.e. National CAC Training, APSAC, NICHD, CornerHouse, etc.). It does not matter what basic training or other advanced training an interviewer has, this training is NOT protocol specific. Seats in this training are intended for professionals currently working as part of an investigative agency, a multidisciplinary team (MDT), or a children’s advocacy center (CAC). If any seats are available, then others may attend the training. The NCAC reserves the right to refund the registration of anyone who is not currently working as part of an investigative agency, a MDT, or CAC, to ensure that currently practicing professionals receive the training they need.
