About the Course

In the in-person Practical Application of the Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview course attendees will apply and practice the elements of the FETI Methodology – both as a facilitator and participant of an interview.

This three-day in-person classroom experience includes live examples of FETI interviews, guided interview instruction, and detailed instructor feedback.

Attendees will be required to experience and practice actual FETI interviews in front of other attendees who will offer critique facilitated by a Certified FETI Instructor. 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 traumatic event.

Additionally, attendees will be expected to perform the role of interviewee multiple times during the course, sharing personal experiences of stress or trauma chosen at their discretion. This course includes practical exercises, individual Personal Experience Interviews, group practice interviews, and comprehensive class discussion.

This course does not certify an attendee in FETI but does fulfill the second requirement for Basic-level FETI certification. Non-participating attendees will be removed from the course with no refund of registration fee.
