Corroborating Evidence For Prosecutors, Law Enforcement, Forensic Interviewers and MDTs

This November 3, 2020 training, titled "Corroborating Evidence For Prosecutors, Law Enforcement, Forensic Interviewers and Multidisciplinary Team members," hosted by Zero Abuse Project and OJJDP's NTTAC, stressed the importance of corroboration and offered forensic interview techniques to increase details and facts gathered in the interview through considerations, sample language, and guidance for the multidisciplinary team approach.  Initial child abuse disclosures and children’s statements ascertained through the forensic interview are only one part of an entire investigation. Increasing relevant corroborative details in the interview will further support the child abuse investigation as a whole.
