ChildFirst® Expanded Forensic Interview Process (ChildFirst® EX)

Course Description

Based on the nationally-recognized ChildFirst® Forensic Interview Protocol, this training provides a purposeful and legally defensible process for conducting expanded forensic 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 teach the expanded interview process as well as research supporting multiple, non-duplicative interviews with child victims and witnesses. This training is appropriate for multidisciplinary team members that have successfully completed a nationally recognized forensic interviewing protocol.
