Childhood Trust

  • Training Programs

    The Childhood Trust at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center offers many seminars and classes where participants can gain state-of-the-art skills and knowledge related to investigative interviewing of allegedly abused children. These are the only intensive training workshops of their kind in the region.

    Participants include:

    • Social workers 
    • Law enforcement investigators
    • Prosecutors
    • Child Advocacy Center staff
    • Medical personnel
    • Psychologists
    • Psychiatrists
    • Interviewers on abuse teams
    • Judges
  • A child's ultimate source of protection is within our courts of law. The Childhood Trust believes that the only way for the legal system to protect children is for all professionals involved to conduct forensically defensible interviews and investigations that protect the right of both the child and the accused.
