NCAC Forensic Interviews of Preschool Child Witnesses

Training Overview

Forensic interviews of preschool children are challenging, calling for knowledge of early childhood developmental abilities and limitations, as well as strategies for developing rapport and maintaining engagement with a preschool witness. A nuanced ability to adapt questioning approaches and the interview protocol to the temperament and linguistic ability of each child is necessary. This training focuses on deepening understanding of preschool capabilities as well as strategies for obtaining information from the youngest witnesses.

This training is recommended for child forensic interviewers who have received no formal training on interviewing preschool children, as well as those who lack comfort in interviewing this population.
