This training provides multidisciplinary team members an understanding of the research and proper use to assist with investigation and prosecution when forensic interviews include the use of interviewing aids of anatomical dolls and diagrams.
While the practice of using anatomical dolls and diagrams is sometimes seen as contentious in the field of forensic interviewing, research shows the appropriate use of dolls and diagrams within the guidance of a nationally recognized protocol can increase forensically relevant information and accuracy within the forensic interview.
This training will summarize relevant research on dolls and diagrams, provide an overview of their purposeful and appropriate use in the forensic interview, and address common defense challenges to the use of dolls and diagrams. This one-day advanced training includes practicum and scenario work for participants.
This training is being offered at no cost to accepted participants under our OJJDP Trauma-Informed Prosecutor Project grant.
We are no longer accepting applications for the October 5th training.
