Child abuse disclosures and information provided by the child during the forensic interview are where the investigation truly begins. Identifying corroborating details from the interview is imperative to the child abuse investigation. Engaging the multidisciplinary team to understand their roles and goals during and after the interview will enhance and strengthen the investigation. Attending this training as an MDT may be very helpful but is not mandatory. This training will take place online via video conferencing.
Topics covered in this session will include
- Recognize information and details that can and need to be corroborated.
- Share examples from child statements/interviews that lead to additional evidence.
- Explore the roles of each member of the MDT and how the investigation continues after the forensic interview.
- Provide an opportunity to network and share best practices.
