Course Abstract

For more information about Comprehensive Victim Interviewing (CVI), please see the Course Abstract and Objectives.

Session Descriptions

Each CVI program is unique, because different experts provide instruction and there is some variation in training content. However, Session Descriptions offer more detail on the type of program components CVI participants can likely expect.

Who Should Attend?

CVI training focuses primarily on interviews conducted by law enforcement, for the purpose of advancing a criminal justice investigation and possible prosecution.

Professionals from other disciplines are welcome and encouraged to attend (e.g., Title IX investigators, victim advocates, health care providers and administrators). Many of the same principles and strategies can be applied to these contexts. However, training will not explicitly address how these other disciplines will apply this content to their work.

How Much Does it Cost?

Registration for the CVI program costs $299. This includes 2 full days of intensive training as well as handouts and a certificate of attendance. We also offer a Help Desk in case you need any assistance before, during, or after the course.

All CVI sessions will be recorded and available to you for 30 days after the live event.  With your paid registration, you will be able to re-watch all your favorite sessions from the CVI course, or catch any sessions that you may have missed.

Trigger Warning

CVI training incorporates real case examples and videorecorded interviews with survivors. Some of this content is graphic and may be upsetting to some viewers. We have taken steps to balance the amount of content that is emotionally difficult with other material, and we also offer multiple opportunities for self-care. However, please be advised that this course is designed primarily for criminal justice professionals, so it includes content from real-world sexual assault cases.

System Requirements

The CVI program features live video streaming, which requires a minimum of 3Mbps internet speed. The event platform is compatible with the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Microsoft Edge.

 Sometimes it feels like I'm huddled under an umbrella with my patient and I'm trying to shield them from a hurricane without others helping me build a safe, dry place for them to rest. This course re-lit my hope and drive to give victims the best possible care, from every member of the team, every time.
