"Corroborating Evidence: For Prosecutors, Law Enforcement, Forensic Interviewers and other MDT Members"

Initial child abuse disclosures and children’s statements ascertained through the forensic interview are only one part of an entire investigation. Increasing relevant corroborative details in the interview will further support the child abuse investigation as a whole. This training stresses the importance of corroboration and offers forensic interview techniques to increase details and facts gathered in the interview through considerations, sample language and guidance for the multidisciplinary team approach. Join Rita Farrell, Director, ChildFirst on Tuesday, November 3, 2020; 3-4:30 pm ET.

FREE EBOOK: Seven Things You Don't Know About Your Child's Digital Life

This free ebook from the Beau Biden Foundation will help you understand what your kids are doing online. It will help you have smarter conversations about their digital life. And, hopefully, it will help you help them make smart decisions about their digital footprint.

In this ebook, you’ll learn:

1. That your child is likely involved in bullying.
2. That digital advertisers are tracking your child.
3. That predators use online gaming platforms to groom children.
4. That your child’s accounts are not really “private.”
5. That your child likely has accounts you don’t know about.
6. That your child is oversharing (ok, you probably know that – but you’ll learn why, and what harm it may cause).
7. That your child has probably seen pornography online.

You’ll also get a free mobile device contract for you and your child to sign, three tips for talking to your children about sexting, and information on the 15 apps law enforcement believe all parents should be aware of.

Children are spending more and more time on their devices. They have at their fingertips access to more information than even imaginable 15 years ago. This connection is incredible. And also frightening.
