Multi-Session Forensic Interview Training


This advanced training session is designed for tenured forensic interviewers to learn the technique for conducting one forensic interview over multiple sessions and to identify those children who may benefit from this approach. The curriculum is based on current practice and incorporates a comprehensive review of the research. Participants will learn how to effectively use this process with the small percentage of children who may require more than one opportunity to disclose all the relevant information regarding abuse allegations, including children with disabilities, pre-school children, those with diverse cultural backgrounds, those who have suffered extreme trauma, and human trafficking victims.

Important Note: Capacity in this training is limited. Attendees must fully participate in all three days of training in order to receive a certificate of completion.

In order to participate in this training, attendees must have completed all three sessions of the CACTX Forensic Interview Core Curriculum, which includes: Semi-Structured Narrative Process: Practical Application for Forensic Interviewers [Block I], Beyond the Sexual Abuse Interview [Block II], and Essential Issues for Forensic Interviewers [Block III].  In addition, participants must have been in their positions as forensic interviewers for at least a year. 

Approval Process:
Registrants will be notified of approval status after registration deadline, approximately one month prior to training. 

Offering quality, professional training in a classroom environment is a key priority for our organization, and we feel that this format is the most conducive to effective learning. Our format allows for small groups, one-on-one coaching and ample Q&A. However, given the inherent size of classroom training, we have to carefully manage the registration process. Our goal is to ensure that participants have timely access to the training sessions they are in need of in order to do their important jobs effectively. In reviewing registrations, our process is to assess both the registrant CAC’s needs as well as the registrant’s completion of course prerequisites.
