This training teaches the CornerHouse Forensic Interview Protocol, a credible, reliable, developmentally flexible, and nontraumatic forensic interview protocol appropriate for children, adolescents, and vulnerable adults who allege sexual or physical abuse or who have witnessed a violent crime. CornerHouse is a children’s advocacy center accredited by the National Children’s Alliance.


CornerHouse abides by a “Child First Philosophy,” which ensures that the needs of the individual are given first priority during the forensic interview process. The forensic interview is person centered and is aligned with the cognitive, behavioral, and social abilities of each individual. Training includes review of CornerHouse video-recorded interviews, skill-building exercises, and role-play. Courses are outcome based and include an exam upon completion. Course topics include The CornerHouse Forensic Interview Protocol: A Developmental Approach; foundations for forensic interviewing; CornerHouse Guiding Principles; multidisciplinary teams; child development and developmental expectations; and the experience and disclosure of sexual abuse. The training is 3.5 days in person and 4 hours of online work that is to be completed prior to the in-person days.
