Who Should Attend

A Training for Prosecutors, Forensic Interviewers, and MDT Members.

Training Description

In cases of child abuse and neglect, a number of ethical challenges may arise during the forensic interview, during the multi-disciplinary investigation, during trial and after a case is resolved in court. In some instances, ethical conundrums arise because MDT members have conflicting ethical codes and competing values. Utilizing a number of case scenarios, this workshop invites a conversation into the ethics of responding to child maltreatment.

Training Objectives

  • Learn to identify ethical codes or other sources that may guide a forensic
    interviewer when facing an ethical conundrum.
  • Learn to recognize situations where the ethical codes of various MDT
    members may conflict and, when that happens, develop a process for
    resolving the situation.
  • Receive practical guidance to prevent ethical violations or, when they do occur, to limit potential damage in responding to an allegation of child abuse.

This training event is sponsored by the Children’s Alliance of Montana and the Zero Abuse Project.
