About This Course

Certified FETI’s Practical Application of the Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview Course provides attendees with instruction over three in-person days (9:00 am - 5:00 pm) that includes:

  • applying and demonstrating the FETI skill sets learned during the FETI Methodology Course
  • participation as an interviewer and participant in multiple interviews each day under the guidance and instruction of a CFP-A instructor
  • participation in one online Personal Experience Interview conducted by an Advanced FETI Practitioner
  • facilitated review of conducted interviews

Each attendee will participate in multiple Forensic Experiential Trauma Interviews, both as a participant and an interviewer, to enhance their understanding and skillset of the FETI methodology. Throughout the course, each student will continue to develop and practice the knowledge, skills, and abilities obtained from the prerequisite courses, the FETI Methodology course (online) or the Introduction to FETI course (in-person).

Additionally, each attendee will participate in a confidential FETI interview facilitated by an Advanced Certified FETI Practitioner with a Specialty in Personal Experience Interviewing. It is essential for those who interview persons who have experienced trauma or high stress to know what it is like to be interviewed about a stressful or traumatic experience.

This course does not certify an attendee in FETI® but does fulfill a requirement for Basic-level certification in FETI®. Certification is optional and not required to utilize the FETI Methodology in a professional role.
