What Our Learners Are Saying About CornerHouse Training

“CornerHouse’s training has revolutionized my understanding of how children disclose, and the considerations in performing interviews. After this training I will participate in our MDT with confidence.”

“Trainers were easy to approach. The learning was relaxed and the groups were small enough to allow for interaction.”

“Sharing experiences, role playing exercises, and watching videos of real interviews were very helpful during the training.”

“Knowing the development of children at different ages has given me insight into how to talk with them; I will approach the interviews differently based on my new understanding of childhood development.”

“This training taught me to remember to remain neutral and try to get away from the police-structured interrogation format to a more people-centered, non-biased interview structure. It will change how I conduct interviews for everyone, not just children.”
