A forensic interview of a preschool child brings unique challenges. Greater knowledge of developmental abilities and limitations, as well as patience and willingness on the interviewer's part to adapt language and limit expectations, is required with this age group. Recommendations for adjusting language and questioning approaches will be provided, as well as an adaptation of interview protocols. Demonstration interviews will be used throughout the training. 

This training is appropriate for forensic interviewers at all levels who want to increase their ability to interview preschool children in a developmentally sensitive and planned way. Completion of nationally recognized forensic interviewing training is required.
