From Trauma to Trial...

Non-stranger sexual assault cases are unlike any other criminal investigation and are some of the most difficult cases to investigate.  Conducting a trauma-informed victim interview and a thorough investigation is paramount.

Adult sexual assault cases do not have to be “he said/she said”.  Learn how to build a strong case by documenting where trauma manifests so that your victim’s statement is supported with corroborating evidence at trial.

 

In this 2-day training you will learn:

 

TRAUMA-INFORMED VICTIM INTERVIEWING

Sexual assault victims often suffer trauma that impacts their memories and their ability to recount events. Interviewing victims who have experienced trauma requires an understanding of the neurobiology of trauma to be successful.

 
SUCCESSFUL SUSPECT STATEMENTS THROUGH EMPATHY-BASED INTERROGATION (EBI) 

Learn a new approach to suspect interrogation that seeks information as much as a confession. Learn how to corroborate your victim’s statement through your suspect’s own words. Understand how communicating empathy keeps your suspect talking and increases the opportunities for corroboration and confessions.

 
DOCUMENTING CORROBORATING EVIDENCE

Learn how to corroborate your victim’s statement in many non-traditional ways so that your victim is supported with concrete evidence at trial.

 
DEALING WITH THE CHALLENGES OF ALCOHOL FACILITATED ASSAULTS

 Alcohol consumption is frequently an issue in sexual assault  cases. Varying levels of intoxication bring different challenges in gathering effective statements and proving the lack of consent. “Pass-Out” and “Black-Out” are common defenses that are raised and require a different approach to the investigation.
