 Introduction to the Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview Course

Monday, April 9- Tuesday, April 10, 2018 MDT

The Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview enables an understanding of how persons who experience trauma or high stress, due to automatic reactions by their brains, actually experienced the event and recorded it into memory. Key to effective evidence gathering, this methodology reduces the inaccuracy of the information provided during an interview and greatly enhances the understanding of the person's traumatic or stressful experience.

Attendees will learn how to use the FETI Methodology to ensure that the interview participant feels safe and understood, to maximize recall, and to enhance the investigative process overall by increasing participant cooperation while reducing potentials for false information and recantation. The Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview is a highly effective technique for victim, witness and subject interviews.

The Introduction to FETI course includes instruction on The Brain and Prolonged Threat, Defense Circuitry, Dissociation, Tonic Immobility, Collapsed Immobility, Impact of Trauma on Memory, Impact of Ethanol on Memory, the Certified FETI Methodology, Contextual Evidence, Experiential Evidence, Psychophysiological Evidence, the Difference between Questioning and Brain-based Cues, the Role of Interview in Context to an Investigation, the FETI Funnel and Reworking Traditional Questions into FETI Brain-based Cues.

Sexual and Interpersonal Violence on College Campuses: What Athletics Leadership and Staff Need to Know

January 30 9:30am - 4pm Albany, NY

In August 2017, the NCAA passed a policy requiring that education and training in sexual and interpersonal violence prevention be provided to athletics leadership and staff as well as student athletes. Beginning in 2018, college Presidents/Chancellors, Athletic Directors and Title IX Coordinators will certify compliance with these training requirements to the NCAA. Beyond compliance requirements, we have an opportunity to share best practices with and among our athletics leadership and staff, to better serve our student athletes and college communities. New York State Education Law 129-B recognizes the importance of training student athletes as leaders to help provide a safer environment for all. This training is intended to be conducted in coordination with each campus’ Title IX Coordinator, who will provide additional, campus-specific, information during and after the program. While this program is developed by and for the State University of New York, non-SUNY college personnel are welcome to register as space allows.
