This 2-day training will focus on going beyond a child’s word and seeking evidence to corroborate a child’s statement. Various members of the Multi-Disciplinary Team, such as law enforcement, child protective services, and forensic interviewers may gather different or differing information. You will focus on evaluating evidentiary findings through crime scene images, interviews and case studies, and highlight the importance of working cooperatively with other disciplines for the benefit of child victims and the prosecution of offenders.
