Zero Abuse Project Abusive Head Trauma & Child Death: A Symposium for Prosecutors

Training Overview

As prosecutors grapple with the repercussions of an increase in physical abuse and abusive head trauma, it is critical to provide training to improve the overall quality of the criminal investigation and prosecution of these complicated cases.

In response to these trends, Zero Abuse Project and the New York Prosecutors Training Institute will jointly host an in-person training for prosecutors dedicated solely to the topics of abusive head trauma and child death. The training will use multidisciplinary subject matter experts from the field to address topics such as medical findings and literature, investigation techniques, improved multidisciplinary approach, preparation and direct examination of the state’s experts, preparation and cross-examination of defense experts, pre-trial litigation, and topics around professional well-being.

Topics will include the latest in abusive head trauma science and medical evidence, investigating deaths involving medically complex children, corroborating crime scenes in child death cases, and more!
