From Crime Scene to Trial

Below you will see courses offered to an audience of prosecutors, social workers, case managers, forensic interviewers, law enforcement officers, investigators or child protection attorneys:
  • From Crime Scene to Trial
  • When Words Matter
I am sharing these as part of my "Defend Yourself" blog with why it is so vitally important, that we as parents, care givers, etc. also do our homework to properly defend themselves. We must all keep in mind that the "Truth is always the Truth" and all sides must be given the opportunity to share the truth.
