A forensic interview is a neutral, fact-finding interview that takes place when there is a concern for abuse. A forensic interview provides a comfortable, unbiased, child-friendly setting and uses non-suggestive, non-leading interview techniques. Dee Norton’s therapists are trained in evidence-based techniques for interviewing children. Through coordination of services with our community partner agencies, we are able to minimize the number of interviews a child receives and optimize the child’s comfort level.
Forensic Interviews provided in 2018
Each day our staff and partners leave their families to respond to another’s family crisis. During this pandemic, or any other crisis, that will not change.
We continue to see high priority cases for forensic interviews and have not yet seen a reduction in the volume of those cases.
Our individual, evidence-based mental health services and our family advocacy services will be offered through Telehealth solutions.
