In this 5-day Specialist Interview Course, sponsored by the Children's Justice Act Task Force, hosted by the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, in collaboration with Multnomah County, the Oregon Department of Justice and the United States Attorney's Office of the District of Oregon, Dr. Joe Sullivan, PhD., of Mentor Forensics, will guide participants to utilize behaviour analysis insights while interviewing perpetrators of sexual crimes against children to inform the creation and implementation of effective interview strategies. This 5-day course combines two of Mentor’s most popular courses (Understanding Child Sex Offenders & the Mentor Interview Technique) to provide a comprehensive insight into understanding the behaviour of perpetrators of sexual crimes against children and applying this knowledge to creating more effective interview strategies. This course provides core knowledge and skills for those whose work involves interviewing or investigating crimes with perpetrators of sexual crimes, and is particularly relevant to offender managers, social workers, and public protection officers. The content will be beneficial to those engaged in risk assessments, intervention programs, investigation and/or risk management.

Those who attend must participate for all 5-days to complete the course. There will be a total of 40-hourse of learning. The course teaching content will be supported by handouts and course reading materials to enhance the participants’ understanding of the topic areas.

All participants will receive a Mentor Certificate of Completion.

It is Mentor policy to request proof of identity and professional credentials from all participants; and they reserve the right to refuse individuals is at their own discretion.
