Introduction: Forensic assessments in cases of alleged sexual abuse is a specialized field of work for which few private practitioners, nor those working at welfare organizations, are equipped. Parents and significant adults in children’s lives are often under the misconception that any therapist, social worker and/or psychologist can do these type of assessments – which jeopardize successful prosecution and results in re-assessment of children and secondary trauma for both the child and parents involved. FACT’s heart and passion is to bring the truth about forensic assessments, sound forensic practice and the standard of who can conduct these assessments, to light. This information session will provide you with a brief overview of forensic practice and highlight some important questions you might never have thought of asking.
Who this course is for: Parents, Teachers, Social Workers, Psychologist, Play Therapist and Registered Counselors. Anyone confronted with the need for a forensic investigation into allegations of abuse.
