Forensic Interviewing Protocol Training
June 14, 2012 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Thursday, Jun 14 at 9:00 AM EDT Training will be held at the Hall of Justice, 925 West Ottawa, Lansing, 48915.
Michigan’s Forensic Interviewing Protocol was developed by the Department of Human Services in conjunction with the Prosecuting Attorney’s Association of Michigan and the Governor’s Task Force on Child Abuse and Neglect. The goal of a forensic interview is to obtain a statement from a child in a developmentally sensitive, unbiased, and truth-seeking manner, so that the child’s statement will support accurate and fair decisions by the criminal justice and child welfare systems. The training is based on the updated 2010 protocol.
Target Audience: Judges, referees, attorneys for children and parents, and caseworkers for the Michigan Department of Human Services, tribes, and private agencies.
