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

Event Dates

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.
