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
  • 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).

This course does not certify an attendee in FETI®. Certification is optional and not required to utilize the FETI Methodology in a professional role.


This course requires completion of all classroom instruction, interviews, and assignments. It is important to review all dates and times for this training course prior to registration as missing any part of the course will result in not being able to receive a certificate of completion. Due to the nature of the training there are no opportunities to make up missed course instruction, interviews or assignments.

All trainings are conducted in English. Contact the help desk for options to attend training in another language before registering. Certified FETI strives to make all of our training events accessible to everyone.

Due to the limited capacity of these events we are unable to refund a token or move you to another cohort if you are currently assigned to a cohort that is within sixty (60) calendar days of starting. We are required to maintain very strict attendance policies at Practical Application of FETI Courses as each attendee directly impacts another attendee’s ability to complete their interviews and coursework.

Due to these requirements, there is no ability to accommodate last minute changes or absences for any reason. This includes court subpoena, work obligations or other commitments that conflict unexpectedly with the cohort agenda. You are highly encouraged to determine your ability to make yourself unavailable with courts and employers prior to selecting a seat in a cohort. Missing any portion of the instructional sessions removes you fully from the remaining portion of the course without refund of your course token.
