Forensic Interview Program

Forensic Interview Program: Forensic interviews are one-time interviews used to gather information from the child about allegations of abuse, and to investigate the allegations and assess child safety. They are digitally recorded to reduce trauma to the child by avoiding multiple interviews and preserving statements for legal purposes. Expanded forensic interviews are a single forensic interview separated into multiple sessions so that it retains forensic integrity while better serving the unique needs of young children or individuals who have special needs or special circumstances in an effort to maximize their competency.

The Forensic Interview Program specifically provides the following services: forensic and expanded forensic interviews of alleged child abuse victims conducted by compassionate, highly educated and experienced forensic interviewers specially trained in forensic interviewing techniques with a solid understanding of child development; coordination and participation in multidisciplinary case review and collaborative meetings with the Children’s Division, law enforcement, Family Court and the Prosecutor’s Office; written reports to Children’s Division and law enforcement; case tracking; testimony in court hearings and training for professionals and community members who work with children or who work in the field of child abuse.

Victims of crime and abuse

The Child Protection Center provides crisis intervention, ongoing support and education to caregivers of children who have been abused. These services help caregivers navigate the child protection, law enforcement and court systems.  The CPC Family Advocates provide referrals for specialized medical and mental health services and link them with any additional community resources that are needed such as domestic violence shelters, substance abuse treatment programs, legal aid, parenting education classes, and food pantries.

Population(s) Served
Adults

The Child Protection Center conducts trainings for multidisciplinary partner agency staff at no cost to participants about the Child Protection Network (CPN) Protocol.  The CPN Protocol outlines each agency’s role and responsibilities in the investigation process and defines the protocol for referrals of children to the CPC.  This training also identifies the often subtle signs of child sexual abuse.  This is critical because untrained staff can miss key indicators because they do not know what they are looking for, or miss an opportunity to refer a child for a forensic interview.  The CPC also provides Stewards of Children, a nationally acclaimed training program for adults who work with children or who are in the community to help them identify victims of abuse and intercede on their behalf.

Population(s) Served

The CFTSI program specifically provides the following services:between  6-8 therapy sessionseach session is one hour longone session with the caregiver and the therapist onlyone or two sessions with the child and the therapist onlyall other sessions are with both the child, their caregiver, and the therapistAfter the CFTSI therapy is complete, families can be referred for long-term therapy if needed.
