APSAC led the way in pioneering training such as this and the Clinics provide an unparalleled 40 hour intensive training opportunity for professionals responsible for investigative interviews with children in suspected abuse cases. APSAC’s curriculum emphasizes state-of-the-art principles of forensically sound interviewing as set forth in the APSAC Practice Guidelines for Investigative Interviewing in Cases of Alleged Child Abuse, with a balanced review of several prominent interview approaches and models.

Each Clinic provides presentations and practice interview critiques from well-known experts, videotaping of participant practice interviews, and a Mock Court experience. In addition to the Clinic notebook, participants receive a resource CD containing a wealth of resource material and articles related to child interviewing, as well as several excellent books that will enhance any interviewer’s knowledge and ability to defend the interview in court. The APSAC Clinic is aimed at professionals responsible for investigative interviews with children in suspected abuse cases, including law enforcement and social service investigators, as well as specialized child interviewers and those who are interested in learning more about forensic child interviewing. They are appropriate for professionals just beginning to conduct investigative interviews, as well as for those with some experience.
