    Hot Topics in Promoting Resilience in Children

     

    The presence of so-called protective factors in the lives of children can buffer some of the negative effects of maltreatment, and resilience is considered an important protective factor. Defined as a “combination of supportive relationships, adaptive skill-building, and positive experiences;” individuals, families, organizations and communities can  support the development of resilience in children. This pre-conference institute will provide an in-depth look at three domains where adaptive  skill building in parents can  promote supportive  relationships and positive experiences,  fostering  resilience in  children: 1) family-based human sexuality  education as a tool to  promote sexual health and safety; 2) shifting cultural norms to reduce the use of a prevalent risk factor for child physical abuse, corporal punishment.; and 3)  understanding and identifying psychological maltreatment. Each topic will include a theoretical background, and offer resources to implement in  your practice or community.

    Advanced Forensic Interviewing Techniques: Interviewing Victims of Commercial Sexual Exploitation and Using Evidence in Forensic Interviews

     

    The first part of this presentation will provide content that forensic interviewers should incorporate in interviews of minors suspected as trafficking and/or internet crimes victims.  The focus will be on non-caregiver cases.  Commercial sexual exploitation interviews will be compared and contrasted to intrafamilial cases.  Strategies to obtain case specific details will be discussed.  The second part will be focused on advanced issues in presenting evidence in forensic interviews.
