Using a research-based forensic interview protocol is important for gathering as much accurate information as possible from children about crimes they have experienced or witnessed.  This webinar will provide an overview of a modified form of the National Institute of Child Health and Development (NICHD) interview protocol.  The pitfalls associated with asking compound, direct, suggestive, and leading questions will be discussed.

Participants will learn the following:

  • How building rapport and providing narrative practice influences how informative children are during interviews.
  • Techniques to increase children’s narrative production.
  • Techniques to minimize the risk of children adopting suggested information.
  • Key points that need to be addressed in forensic interviews.
