Connecting Forensic Interview Research, Practice, and Peer Review Training
July 28 - 30, 2020 - Huntsville, AL
Eliciting reliable and detailed information from a child or adolescent about a potentially traumatic and/or abusive experience is a complex process that requires specialized skill in forensic interviewing. The need for ongoing training, feedback, and review never ends; but may change depending on the level of experience and previous training. Forensic interviewers often find it difficult to access the most beneficial type of training and review, to meet their personal goals for skill development.
NCAC is piloting a new training format to tailor an advanced forensic interview training to the needs and interests of trainees. NCAC has designed a 3-day training with a distinct focus for each day. Trainees may choose to register for one, two, or all three days of training. Each day is a deep dive into an area including: Skill Building Sessions, Peer Review, and a Review and Discussion of Recent Research. Each day of the training is optional so learners can select the training they need, up to three full days.
This training is designed for the experienced forensic interviewer and will provide the most current updates in the field and effective skill development. Learners benefit from three experienced trainers, all forensic interview specialists at the National Children’s Advocacy Center with a combined 70+ years’ experience in the child maltreatment response field. The training is not protocol specific.
