Webinar To Discuss Child Forensic Guidelines in Child Abuse Cases

On August 16, 2017, from 2 to 3:15 p.m. ET, OJJDP, in collaboration with the National Criminal Justice Training Center, will present "Which Comes First: the Child Forensic Interview or the Medical-Forensic Exam?" This webinar will address the child forensic interview and the medical evaluation portions of the National Children's Alliance’s new "Standards for Accredited Members." The webinar will review the criteria for categorizing disclosures of child sexual abuse as emergency, urgent, and nonurgent; best practices for performing a medical examination; and the purpose and admissibility of statements made during a child forensic interview and medical forensic examination.
