Presented by Markel Consulting, LLC and hosted by the Office of Social Equity, Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview (FETI) Training will be held on Thursday, March 31, 2016, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex.
This training is fundamental for any professional who interviews,
responds to, or interacts with trauma victims. This includes campus
advocates, student conduct and residence life personnel, health service
providers and mental health professionals, and law enforcement
Participants will learn how to use FETI to ensure that
trauma victims feel safe and understood, to maximize recall, and to
enhance the investigative process overall by increasing victim
cooperation and participation while reducing potentials for false
information and recantation.
The Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview enables investigators and other interviewers to understand how victims, due to automatic reactions by their brains, actually experienced their assaults and record them into memory. Key to effective evidence gathering, this technique reduces the inaccuracy of the information provided by a victim during an interview, and greatly enhances the understanding of the traumatized person’s experience. It is a highly effective technique for victim, witness and some suspect interviews.
The registration fee is $60 before March 17, 2016, and $80 after that date. This training is open to all IUP personnel, employees from other PASSHE schools, and local and state professionals. Seating is limited to the first 200 registrants. Registrations are now open through the IUP Conference Services Marketplace.
