Wisconsin Forensic Interviewing Guidelines
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.
It is required that all attendees actively participate and complete the full 5 days of training to receive a certificate.
Due to limited space, not all applicants will be accepted, and participation may be limited to two individuals per county. This training will be conducted up to 4 times per year in a virtual format until further notice.
