Course Description:

Are you a forensic interviewer who attended CFIT prior to 2022? In this one-day training, you'll get a refresher on the research base that informs the approaches taught in CFIT including an overview of the updates to Tom Lyon's 2021 Ten Step Investigative Interview template and other "hot topics" in forensic interviewing, as well as explore some of the new training activities and resources included in this latest CFIT revision. This training is designed for individuals who have previously attended CFIT and who conduct forensic interviews (FIs) in a MDT setting; it is not intended for MDT members who do not conduct FIs. 
This one day training is intended for individuals who have previously attended a CFIT training prior to 2022 and who conduct forensic interviews. The CFIT curriculum has been revised and this training will focus on those updates.
