This course will introduce child forensic interviewing within the context of multidisciplinary team investigations, interviewer and team responsibilities, interview models and techniques, child development of language and cognition as it applies to interviewing, disclosure dynamics, childhood trauma as it relates to interviewing, and brief discussions of special topics including interviewing small children, adolescents, and children with special needs, and cultural competency. Experiential exercises and role-play activities are interwoven throughout the four-day training.
