Forensic Interviewing of Children Training
The National Children's Advocacy Center (NCAC) Forensic Interviewing of Children training is an internationally recognized, research-informed and practice-informed intensive training. Participants will learn necessary skills to conduct a competent investigative interview of a child using the NCAC Child Forensic Interview (CFI) Structure. Participants will also be introduced to the evidence-based literature that supports the NCAC CFI Structure.
This interactive training is facilitated by practicing forensic interviewers who are well-versed in the current literature. The training includes lectures, skill-building activities, guided discussions, reflections, and an interview practicum in a supportive environment with assessment and feedback provided by experienced interviewers.
This training is a four-day commitment. Participants are expected to complete six-hours of pre-work consisting of selected readings and interactive recorded exercises to be done at their own pace prior to the first official day of training. Trainings are conducted multiple times throughout the year either on-site in Huntsville, AL, or virtually.
