A Safe Place for Children to be Heard
Helping Children Heal
A forensic interview is a single session, recorded interview designed to elicit a child’s unique information when there are concerns of possible abuse or when the child has witnessed violence.
Our forensic interviews are conducted in a supportive and non-leading manner by a professional trained in the Forensic Interview model.
The purposes of a forensic interview are:
- To obtain information from a child that may be helpful in a criminal investigation;
- To assess the safety of the child’s living arrangements;
- To obtain information that will either corroborate or refute allegations or suspicions of abuse and neglect;
- To assess the need for medical treatment and psychological care.
