Working with Law Enforcement
I've conducted trainings lately for law enforcement audiences on Assessing Credibility of Survivor/Victims. In Evansville, Indiana I did the same training two days in a row to get to as many law enforcement officers, advocates, medical professionals and mental health professionals as we could. We spent each day with a little more than 100 participants.
The training delved into how trauma can impact the way survivors/victims may respond. Since we are always assessing credibility, the signs of trauma may be misunderstood and lead responders to think the survivor was not being truthful. We explored how flat affect, dissociation, and other coping skills can appear to conflict with what the survivor is reporting.
