MCASA’s Trauma Informed Training

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.


The training is scheduled at University of Maryland, College Park on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. 

It will be held in the Colony Ballroom in the Stamp Student Union.  A campus map can be found here. The address for the University of Maryland, College Park is 3972 Campus Dr. College Park, MD 20742.
