APSAC Child Forensic Interview Clinics – Seattle Washington
July 30, 2012 @ 7:30 am - August 3, 2012 @ 4:00 pm$1099
Consistent with its mission, APSAC pioneered the Forensic Interview Training Clinic model to focus on the needs of professionals responsible for conducting forensic/investigative interviews with children in suspected abuse cases. Interviews with children have received intense scrutiny in recent years and increasingly require specialized training and expertise. This comprehensive Clinic offers a unique opportunity to participate in an intensive 40 hour training experience and have personal interaction with leading experts in the field of child forensic interviewing. Developed by top experts, APSAC’s curriculum teaches a structured narrative interview approach that emphasizes best practices based on research and is guided by best interests of the child. Attendees will receive a balanced review of several protocols and will develop their own customized narrative interview approach based on the principles taught during the Clinic.
