Attendees will be asked to review a forensic interview prior to the training and make note of any concerns they have regarding the interview. Participants will get the household information and the initial referral to the CAC for the forensic interview. During the training, we will use this case throughout the day as a reference point. Please come prepared.

The training is approved for up to 12 CLE Credits only. No POST or Advocate credit at this time.

This is a free training. No meals or lodging will be provided. The only reimbursements that will be offered are to staff of the District Attorneys’ Offices if their DA approves of the travel.
