Training participants will also learn how to both interface with the appropriate investigative agencies, law enforcement and Children's Division, and to testify in court regarding information from therapy sessions with child victims. This event is supported by the Office for Victims of Crime in coordination with the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
