The vicious cycle of child abuse is interrupted only when children are heard and the abuse is stopped.

CornerHouse hears the voices of approximately 500 children each year when conducting forensic interviews and medical examinations of children who have reported sexual abuse, witnessed violent crime or who may have been otherwise victimized.

Since its founding in 1989, CornerHouse has used an interview method which promotes a collaborative system response, eliciting statements from children in a way that is developmentally appropriate, non-leading, and ensures the rights of the accused.

In 1990, CornerHouse began training others about this method and other best practices in forensic interviewing. To date, CornerHouse has trained over 20,000 individuals who have come from 48 states as well as Canada, Jamaica, Kosovo, Uruguay, American Samoa, Japan, Columbia, and the International Criminal Court at the Hague seeking forensically sound methods of interviewing children. Trainees report that CornerHouse training is, “…by far the best training (they) have ever attended…”!
