National Children's Advocacy Center
210 Pratt Avenue NE
As many child advocacy centers (CAC) employ child forensic interview specialists or choose to develop a small group of investigator interviewers, there is a growing need for a set plan for building skills and increasing the competency and resilience of their forensic interviewers.
Supervision, a long-standing tradition in medicine and mental health, is an established relationship between a senior practitioner and a more junior partner to provide feedback, guidance, support, and ongoing education toward developing a specialized skill.
An experienced forensic interviewer may need more education or direction to increase their knowledge about supervision or develop skills and abilities to provide supervision in a structured and intentional way.
Course topics include:
- principles of supervision
- core values and practices around effective supervision a model for assessing current forensic interviewers' skill level
- developmental needs suggestions for continual growth and support to promote resiliency and longevity
- excellence in interviewing
This training is appropriate for experienced forensic interviewers who want to develop or strengthen a supervision program for forensic interviewers within their CAC, state, or region. Completion of nationally recognized forensic interviewing training is required.
