Wisconsin Forensic Interview Guidelines Training
This five-day, interactive program is designed to introduce participants to the Wisconsin Forensic Interview Guidelines. Learners will develop forensic interview skills by increasing their knowledge of the process of disclosure, the impact of language and development, effects of trauma, and question strategies that contribute to dynamics of memories and suggestibility. Learners will also engage in practice opportunities for conducting developmentally appropriate forensic interviews of child alleged as child abuse victims or children who have witnessed abuse or violence. All content will be reflected in the concept that forensic interviews have the purpose of gathering accurate information from children about events they experience.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to space being limited, not all applicants will be accepted. This training will be conducted regionally across the state up to 4 times per year. Because of limited space, we often have to limit the training to 2 per county, at least initially.
Registration is online. A link is available on the Children’s Justice Act web page (https://www.doj.state.wi.us/ocvs/not-crime-victim/childrens-justice-act).
