Washington, DC: Practical Application of the Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview
Practical Application of FETI® attendees will apply and demonstrate FETI® skill sets learned during the Introduction to FETI® course. Live examples of Forensic Experiential Trauma Interviews will be utilized to demonstrate the correct practical application of the methodology.
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 and group practice interviews along with comprehensive class discussion.
This course does not certify an attendee in FETI® but does fulfill a requirement for Basic-level certification in FETI®. Non-participating attendees will be removed from the course with no refund of the registration fee.
The Washington DC Office of Victim Services and Justice Grants is hosting this Certified FETI® training. Travel, lodging, and other logistics are not facilitated by Certified FETI® and we are not able to respond to any inquiries regarding these matters.
