Abuse, Trauma, and Forensic Interviewing | Instructors: Chris Schopen, LPC and Kelly Wills, Police Crisis Intervention Specialist

This will broaden participants’ knowledge of how reliable information is collected in a child-sensitive, developmentally appropriate and legally defensive manner.
Intended Audience: This training is exclusively designed for non-investigative professionals with duties that include dealing with children who are involved in abuse cases, including DCS Case Managers, Court Appointed Special Advocates, Guardian Ad Litems, and Counselors.
