This presentation will discuss strategies and procedures utilized in forensic interviewing of internet-facilitated child exploitation and human trafficking cases for state, local, tribal or in Federal investigations. Given that there has been no prior disclosure by the victim(s) in the large majority of these cases, some flexibility is necessary to secure a positive outcome for the victim and the investigation. What’s different from your typical case? What’s the same? How can I adapt? What can we learn from our Federal partners? The presenter will address these questions and concerns and provide case examples, strategies and suggestions.
