Courses for Forensic Interviewers

Coming Soon! September 2014 

NICHD Ten-Step Forensic Interviewing Training

The Midwest Regional CAC  partnered with Tom Lyon to expand his NICHD Ten Step Forensic Interview Training  and make it available online to CAC staff members and MDT partners!

The best news is this NEW online course meets the NCA Accreditation Standard for Forensic Interviewing.  Course contents include: overview of the Ten-Step Interview, which follows the NICHD protocol, child development, rapport building and narrative practice, question types, interview instructions, allegation phase and follow-up questions, cultural competency, time, number and repeated abuses, thoughts and feelings, reluctance and recantation, asking children about preferences, peer review, and tips for testifying.

Satisfactory completion indicates that the participant has participated in all of the training including; the pre and post test, required readings/quizzes and participated in a live peer review of one of their interviews. Homework outside of participation in the online streaming will be given and completion expected. Once all of these requirements are met you will be able to print out a Certificate of Completion from the eLearning portal.

Registration will open in September 2014!  Learn More
