Save The Date: MCASA’s Trauma-Informed Training

Jul 27th, 2017


The Maryland Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MCASA) will host a special trauma-informed training with former Supervisory Special Agent Lori D. Heitman, a managing partner and co-founder of Strand & Heitman Innovative Forensic Technologies LLC.  Mrs. Heitman, who was a Supervisory Special Agent with the United States Army Criminal Investigation Division Command, is a nationally-recognized expert in sexual assault investigations and trauma-informed response. This training helps professionals understand the Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview (FETI), which acknowledges the victim's trauma, allows the survivor to recount the assault in the manner in which the trauma was experienced, and enhances a victim's ability to recall.
