Workshop Description

This full day workshop will provide attendees with a fuller understanding of the grooming process and concrete, practical ways to gather information about grooming during an interview. Whether interviewing child victims, family members, or perpetrators, utilizing recent research on grooming and offense pathways can significantly improve the results of interviews. Based on victim environment and grooming research, McDonald developed victim interview protocols that include questions designed to reveal grooming practices of offenders. Her protocols have led to improved interviews, richer prosecution context, and better case outcomes. This workshop will cover the ways offenders groom a victim's environment, the steps of grooming, how to develop an
interview plan, integrating grooming information into investigations, and much more!

Workshop Description


The Neurobiology of Trauma and Victim Impact-Investigative Implications will include a discussion of brain research, physical impact, the psychological aspects, health impact, spiritual dynamics, and genetic implications of trauma. The adverse childhood experience study will be reviewed and recommendations for screening and early intervention will be provided for participants. Children exposed to violence will be discussed as a newer model of thinking regarding the impact of trauma, helping multidisciplinary teams to understand that the neurobiology of trauma exceeds the scope of only family violence.


Child Sexual Exploitation Today will focus on the extraordinarily more complicated nature of child sexual exploitation. Participants will learn of child sexual abuse images and the victim impact that has led to Supreme Court arguments. In addition, professionals will discuss the reality of familial trafficking of children, the continuum of cyber-enticement to cyberbullying and cyberstalking of children, and the complex nature of children as victims of sex tourism. This presentation will also provide an in-depth discussion of the victim, offender and legal aspects of domestic minor sex trafficking with an emphasis on technology facilitation. Finally, a discussion of self-exploitation and the emerging trend of parental psychological maltreatment of children in the online world will be provided.
