Director of Forensic Services Dallas Children's Advocacy Center
This presentation will discuss the demographics of possible victims that might fall prey to those seeking to lure children into abusive relationships by forming emotional attachments to the victim. These bonds can be so strong that victims themselves fail to see the manipulation that has occurred. They instead see themselves as in a loving relationship which can complicate both the investigative and interview process in an attempt to protect the offender and their “relationship.” The desired outcome of this presentation is that attendees will leave having a better understanding of these victims, perpetrators and potential interview blocks and will leave having learned techniques to help them deal with this sort of case in the field. This workshop will only be recorded and available On-Demand from August 9, 2021 until December 17, 2021.
