    FORENSIC CRIMINAL INTERVIEWING AND ANALYSIS TRAINING

    This intensive three-day training is designed to enhance the knowledge, techniques and skills of those already certified as forensic mental health evaluators (CFMHE). It was conducted by a preeminent and nationally known retired FBI supervisory special agent who worked in the Behavioral Science Unit of the FBI. Attendees will learn hostage negotiation techniques, interview mapping, interviewee needs assessment, rapport building, crisis intervention strategies, tools for enhancing assessment with individuals with serious mental illness, risk assessment, strategies for court testimony, and more.  

    The "on demand" webinar entails viewing video footage of the live webinar event that was originally conducted in June 2016.  After completing the webinar, attendees must pass a 10 question post-test with a score of 70% or higher in order to receive CEU credit.  The post-test also serves as a practice test for the 100-question multiple choice exam that must be passed with a score of 75% or higher in order to be awarded the Certified Forensic Behavioral Analyst (CFBA) credential.  The CFBA credential cannot be awarded unless the attendee is already a CFMHE.

    Terrorist attacks, mass shootings, school shootings and community violence have drastically increased, leading to a spike in PTSD, anxiety disorders, panic attacks and depression. The rapid increase in traumatic events create an opportunity for trained mental health professionals to join with media to provide recovery information to help the general public. This interactive session will equip you with what you need to do in partnering with media, (radio, television, print or Internet), in order to achieve a positive outcome. You will learn how to work with the media before, during and after a critical incident with a powerful communication model that has been successfully used to empower people with critical incident recovery information. An interactive workbook will be given to each participant to enhance this media training experience.

    Learning Objectives:

    Objective 1 1. Plan out a community mental health response to rapidly respond when future traumatic incident occur 

    Objective 2 2. Match your most effective media communication style to the type of community trauma where you can make the greatest difference

    (4)    Learn how to write a “bullet-proof” forensic evaluation report
