The traditional multidisciplinary Finding Words training for the Central region will be conducted October 16-20. 2023 in New Brunswick, NJ. The Central Region includes Hunterdon, Somerset, Union, Middlesex, Mercer, Monmouth and Ocean counties. 

This training is grant funded, and requires that counties send a multidisciplinary team, comprised of, at a minimum, a detective/interviewer, an assistant prosecutor, and a DCPP worker.  (Usually, one worker from each of the county’s DCPP Local Offices attends.)

It is important for each of the Central Counties to assemble their teams for this training, and to have those members fill out the application on the Finding Words website: Forensic Interview Training | Finding Words (

Please share this information with your MDT coordinators, detectives and supervisors, and DCPP workers and their supervisors.
