This intervention is tailored for the first critical days after disclosure or a child investigative interview. Linda’s presentation will focus on key aspects that are important to be aware of for professionals involved in interagency case management.

Noora Halmeenlaakso will join to present a handbook on investigating interviewing. The handbook aims to support professionals in carrying out investigative interviews in presumed cases of trafficking in children.

Rebecca O’Donnell will join and discuss key European and international legal provisions with a particular focus on multidisciplinary approaches and services. Rebecca will highlight the revision of the trafficking directive, referral mechanism provisions, and provisions from the revision of the victims’ rights directive.
