To date, the trafficking conference has welcomed presenters from 33 states and 16 countries to educate social service, health care, and criminal justice professionals on human trafficking and the needs and risk of victims, as well as their customers, and traffickers.

Extended Forensic Interview Training
In child abuse investigations, the single interview model is the approach currently recommended by Multidisciplinary Teams (MDTs), Child Advocacy Centers (CACs) and "best practice" resources throughout the US. This approach assumes a child is willing and able to discuss the allegation topic and can provide sufficient detail to inform the investigation and to support case decisions. While the single interview approach is sufficient for many children and cases, a subset of children are challenged to participate in such a focused conversation with a stranger and may benefit from more time and an expanded conversation over multiple sessions. This training introduces a model for a multi-session forensic interview of a child who is potentially a victim or witness of child abuse or other violent behaviors. An Extended Forensic Interview (EFI) is appropriate for children where the results of a single interview are inconclusive or where there are serious concerns about the child's ability to participate in a single-session interview. Such children might be the very young child, a child with developmental delays or cognitive disabilities, or an extremely traumatized child. Cultural considerations may indicate a need for an EFI, rather than a single-session interview. For more information, contact Sherelle Gilbert at mailto:sgilbert@nationalcac.org OR call 256-327-3786.

Child Abduction Response Team
The Child Abduction Response Team (CART) training is a multidisciplinary approach to responding to a missing or abducted child incident. Team composition is critical to a CART’s implementation and long-term success. Commitment from the Chief Executive Officer(s) (CEO) is required before a team will be reviewed and accepted for placement in CART training. Each jurisdiction is different in its approach to responding to missing and abducted children; some jurisdictions have more resources than others; however, representatives from the following disciplines are suggested for a “working team": law enforcement, legal agencies, probation and parole, communications, victim advocates, social service agencies, emergency management personnel to include fire/rescue and search and recovery units, school resource officers, and other key stakeholders that the CART coordinator and CEO(s) identify as necessary to a CART’s overall ability to be successful in the recovery of a missing or abducted child. This training is provided through the AMBER Alert Training and Technical Assistance Program.
