Interactive online courses are another way to learn what I teach to live audiences and in my writings and videos. People have different learning styles, and you may find these courses are a good match for you.

They were created with Articulate Rise software, which provides lots of engaging ways to receive and interact with content, including various layouts and combinations of text, images, audio and video.

A few notes: The first course offered here has three parts and doesn’t yet include a lesson on memory. It’s geared to investigators but accessible to everyone, and I’m working on versions tailored for other professionals and people who have been assaulted. I hope to offer continuing education credits in the future.

Some tips: These courses look best on a tablet or larger screen, but work on phones too. On larger screens, you can change font sizes in your browser (here’s how in Chrome and MS Edge). To leave and retain your progress upon returning, keep the browser window open. 

Finally, a caution: Some course content will be triggering for some people; please take care of yourself.
