ODAA Summer Conference DV Training

Organization: 
Oregon Department of Justice
Date/time: 
Wednesday, August 13, 2014 - 9:00am - 4:00pm

What: A one-day training with Chief Russell Strand

Mr. Strand is the Chief of the U.S. Army Military Police School Family Advocacy Law Enforcement Training Division. He has established and developed the U.S. Army Domestic Violence Intervention Training and Child Abuse Prevention and Investigation Techniques courses.

Mr. Strand also developed the revolutionary interview technique known as the Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview (FETI) and was awarded the 2012 End Violence Against Women International Visionary Award. FETI utilizes information about the parts of the brain that experience trauma.  This technique not only reduces the inaccuracy of the information obtained but enhances understanding of the experience, increasing the likelihood that judges and juries will also understand the event.

When: August 13th, 9 – 4 pm

What’s the Cost?  FREE! Thanks to a  generous partnership between the Oregon DOJ, the Oregon District Attorneys Association, and the Clackamas County Chiefs’ Association, registration, materials, and refreshments will be provided to all attendees.
