Child Interview Refresher - Online

This day-long training is an online refresher class for WA State law enforcement, CPS, prosecutors and child interviewers who have previously attended the 3 - 5 day Child Abuse Interviewing and Assessment courses (CJTC course # 5357 or #5358) sponsored by the WA State Criminal Justice Training Commission (CJTC), DSHS and the Alliance for Child Welfare Excellence.

The class will review and reinforce research-based best practices in child forensic interviewing and discuss recent modifications to best practices in child forensic interviewing.
