ChildFirst® EX: Expanded Forensic Interview Process

We now know that one single comprehensive forensic interview does not meet the needs for all children. Based on the nationally-recognized ChildFirst® Forensic Interview Protocol, this training provides a defensible process for conducting interviews with children who may not succeed in a standard, single interview due to trauma, developmental, special needs or other complicating issues, including polyvictimization. This training will discuss the expanded interview process as well as research supporting multiple, non-duplicative interviews with child victims and witnesses. ChildFirst® EX can be utilized with any forensic interview protocol model and includes not only lecture but practice for participants in conducting an expanded forensic interview.
