Step 1 of 3 to Basic Certification

Introduction to the Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview

Course Description

The Introduction to FETI® course is the first step on the path to Basic Certification. At the core of the Introduction to FETI course is a comprehensive classroom experience taught by a Certified FETI® Advanced (CFP-A) instructor with significant industry and FETI® interviewing experience. Each CFP-A Instructor is joined by a Certified FETI® class facilitator to better provide attendees with customized guidance, both during the course and in preparation for those attendees who choose to continue on the path to Basic Certification. In addition to in-person, classroom training, the course encompasses an online component, which includes a library of information and online resources.

The introductory course provides instruction in two primary areas – the science and practice basis for the FETI® methodology and the official FETI Framework™ on how to correctly conduct a Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview.

Attendees of the Introduction to FETI are encouraged to enroll in the second step on the path to certification, the Practical Application of the Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview, where interviews are conducted, practiced, and evaluated by our instructors in a small and highly effective learning environment. Most individuals and organizations choose to take both courses within the same week of instruction.

Attendees must be present for the entire training, complete all required coursework and fully participate in all required exercises to receive a certificate of completion. Attendees with a certificate of completion achieve the prerequisite requirement to attend the Practical Application of FETI® course. Completion of this course does not provide an attendee with a license to instruct the FETI® Methodology or identify themselves as a Certified FETI® Practitioner. Attendees intending to be identified as a practitioner of Certified FETI® are required to fulfill all requirements of, at a minimum, Basic Certification. Attendees intending to instruct Certified FETI® are required to fulfill requirements of Advanced Certification and then apply for a specialty designation of Instructor.
