This on-demand professional training program on Introduction to developmentally appropriate interviewing using the Revised NICHD Protocol is presented by Michael Lamb, PhD, Irit Hershkowitz, PhD, Mireille Cyr, PhD, and Carlos Eduardo Peixoto, PhD.

The Revised NICHD (National Institute of Child Health and Human Development) Protocol, developed over the last three decades, provides detailed research- and evidence-based guidance for structured forensic interviews of young and vulnerable alleged victims of abuse. Effective use of the Protocol demands both (1) a thorough understanding of the underlying research and principles and (2) extended supervision and guidance as a trainee works to translate principles into effective practices.   This program reviews the underlying research that guided the development of the NICHD Investigative Interview Protocol and informed its structure and content, particularly child, event, and interview factors. This program is the first of a 4-program certificate program for users and consumers of the NICHD Investigative Interview Protocol and serves as a prerequisite.
