November 12-14, 2019 – Appleton, WI

This course is designed to enhance child interviewing skills and information gathering to allow for accurate and meaningful information to be gathered from children who are alleged to be child abuse victims or children who have witnessed abuse or violence. Participants will learn about the impact of language and development on gathering accurate information from children, question strategies that contribute to dynamics of memory and suggestibility, and how and when to adopt a multidisciplinary approach to assessments. All content will be reflected in the concept that interviews have the purpose of gathering accurate information from children about events they experience.
