Training NameConducting Reenactments in Child Death Investigations
Training Description

This is a 1-day, in-person training that focuses on conducting reenactments with caregivers in child death investigations and incorporates hands-on practice in a mock crime scene apartment. This training begins with a review of the fundamentals of reenactments. Additional topics will include identifying the placer and finder; adapting reenactment techniques to a variety of scenarios; and identifying documentation techniques and challenges.  Participants will each be assigned a scenario involving an unexpected child death.  Using a demonstration doll, participants will walk through the reenactment process with an actor, or actors, portraying the child’s caregiver(s). Simulation trainings aim to mimic the conditions and content of the tasks that an investigator will confront in real life situations and allows individuals to practice their skills and receive feedback without real-world consequences. Participants will receive a demonstration doll to take back with them to their office to use in future investigations.
