This training introduces a model for a multi-session forensic interview of a child who is potentially a victim or witness of child abuse or other violent behaviors. An Extended Forensic Interview (EFI) is appropriate for children where the results of a single interview are inconclusive or where there are serious concerns about the child's ability to participate in a single-session interview. Such children might be the very young child, a child with developmental delays or cognitive disabilities, or an extremely traumatized child. Cultural considerations may indicate a need for an EFI, rather than a single-session interview.

The EFI Model is based on empirically-based forensic principles. Topics addressed during the EFI training are empirical evidence for multi-session forensic interviewing, overview of the National Children's Advocacy Center EFI model, forensic questioning of children, developmental and cultural considerations, memory and suggestibility, the use of media in forensic questioning, incremental and direct approaches to substantive issues, and consideration of alternative hypotheses in forensic questioning.
