Conducting Trauma Informed Sexual Assault Investigations
August 27 – 29, 2019
8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
WITC-New Richmond Conference Center
Catalog number: 47-504-466
Day one will examine the biological backdrop from which trauma reactions emerge, providing investigators, prosecutors, advocates and other stake-holders with a more complete understanding of how to respond to victims, and how to investigate these cases more fully.
Days two and three will explore the research supporting the use of trauma-informed interview techniques as the best means for obtaining the most accurate information from victim survivors about the sexual assault. The trauma impact will be connected to the interview, providing explanation for what we know about the impact of trauma on the brain with demonstration of how “old” interview and interrogation methods are ineffective.
