ChildFirst Expanded Forensic Interview Training
Based on the nationally-recognized ChildFirst® Forensic Interview Protocol, this 2.5-day 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 discuss the expanded interview process as well as research supporting multiple, non-duplicative interviews with child victims and witnesses. ChildFirst® EX can be utilized with any forensic interview protocol model and includes not only lecture but practice for participants in conducting an expanded forensic interview.
