Multidisciplinary Team Members and Community Service Partners
Specially trained individuals engage in the interview process so that suspected victims of abuse can find the strength to discuss their trauma. Forensic interviewers are from area law enforcement, Department of Children & Families, and Heart to Heart.  The forensic interview process is structured in such a way that the interviewer can explore the child’s abuse in the least intrusive manner possible. Forensic interviewers strive to fully understand the scope of the child’s trauma.  After the forensic interview is concluded, the child and family work with Child & Family Advocates to access advocacy services.
