Experiential training is the most effective form of training for prosecutors, law enforcement officers, child protection workers, forensic interviewers and other professionals responding to a report of child maltreatment as part of a multi-disciplinary team (MDT). Experiential training results in a greater retention of knowledge and the growth of skills necessary to respond to child maltreatment with excellence.
In this 3-day course, MDTs will respond to a report of child maltreatment involving abusive head trauma, child sexual abuse, neglect, emotional abuse, witnessing domestic violence, and animal cruelty. Working as a team, students process a crime scene, interview witnesses, interrogate suspects, conduct a forensic interview, apply for search warrants, and make charging decisions. The course also includes workshops on interviewing suspects, investigating polyvictimization, and processing a crime scene.
Applicants MUST apply together as an MDT. Each applicant team must name at least one prosecutor, law enforcement officer, and forensic interviewer. Teams should also ideally include a child protection worker, though is not required. Teams may name additional team members, for no more than eight people total.
