This webinar presented by East Central Oklahoma University STAABLE Program, explains how to apply the science of memory and psychological trauma to enhance trauma interview approaches and techniques. Traditional training in this area focused on the explaining the impact of trauma on the “higher functioning” portions of the brain. However, research in the field demonstrates that these portions of the brain are not generally involved in experiencing and reacting to trauma. Adapting the principles used in critical incident stress debriefing and also the empathy-based techniques developed for forensic child interviews, the FETI process was developed to instead engage the ‘lower functioning’ portions of the brain. This technique reduces inaccuracy of the information provided and increases the likelihood of understanding the totality of the experience.
