The Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview enables an understanding of how persons who experience trauma or high stress, due to automatic reactions by their brains, actually experienced the event and recorded it into memory. Key to effective evidence gathering, this methodology reduces the inaccuracy of the information provided during an interview and greatly enhances the understanding of the person's traumatic or stressful experience.
