ChildFirst®: The Course
ChildFirst® is a unique approach to forensic interviewing for several reasons. The course was designed by and for the front-line child abuse professional. Courses teach students to apply the latest research to real-world situations. Students watch numerous videotaped child sexual abuse interviews as a means of bringing the course material to life.
The program requires students to demonstrate their interviewing skills. ChildFirst® models the multidisciplinary approach.The program encourages ongoing critiques of students’ interviewing skills in order to improve their technique. The ChildFirst® forensic interview course has been approved by the National Children’s Alliance to meet accreditation standards.
