This one-hour online video training program is Part Two in a Three-part series of the Reid Technique for Child Abuse Investigations. In Part One of this series, which includes a printable study guide, common characteristics, attitudes, and behavioral patterns of child abuse offenders for both physical and sexual abuse were thoroughly discussed. In Part Two, which also includes a printable study guide, we will discuss the Investigative Interview for Child Abuse Investigations. This program will focus on developing proper interview questions to be asked in a sexual abuse and physical abuse investigative interview of alleged child abuse offenders to help in the overall assessment of their possible involvement in the abusive behavior. The process of questioning a subject often consists of two phases. Phase I is considered the Investigative Interview and Phase II is considered the Clarification Phase. Part Three of this series discusses the Clarification Phase.

In this program Investigators will learn:

  • The proper characteristics of the interviewer, the attitude the interviewer should display and preparation for the interview

  • The proper room setting for the interview

  • The characteristics of the interview and how the interview is distinctly different from the Clarification Phase.

  • The Six Types of interview questions to ask in the interview and the type of subject responses that are typical of a subject who is telling the truth or withholding information.

    1. Initial or biographical questions

    2. Investigative questions

    3. Questions to develop the subject’s relationship with the victim

    4. Questions to identify possible precipitators

    5. Questions to identify propensity

    6. Behavior provoking questions

    Part three discusses the Clarification Phase and how to use Positive Persuasion to motivate the deceptive offender to tell the truth about their abusive behavior.
