Welcome to the RADAR FI Models for interviewing children
Testimonals from RADAR Users
Below are testimonials from actual RADAR users in a variety of professional fields.
“As a social worker, I have been worried about pushing a child too far or re-traumatizing. This class helped me understand second session, coping skills, and how to safely engage a child.”
RADAR is a fantastic resource for new and experienced interviewers alike. As a new interviewer, I felt fully prepared for any FI because our trainers challenged and supported us throughout RADAR training. The rest of my team and I now refer back to the RADAR book frequently when preparing for interviews and peer reviews. The versatile protocol gives new interviewers the necessary foundation for conducting basic interviews, and gives experienced interviewers the ability to adapt it to complex FIs.

RADAR was my preferred protocol throughout my two years as an interviewer. Specifically, I liked the structure. I felt more confident as a new interviewer using RADAR than I think I would have been in the other two models.
“I was surprised by how easy the Radar Interview is to learn and follow with just a little practice.”
