The vicious cycle of child abuse is interrupted only when children are heard and the abuse is stopped. Healing Young Lives is a 7-minute documentary about the work of CornerHouse, a public/private partnership based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This version has been shortened from the original length of 15 minutes for use in training classes.
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.
CornerHouse also trains others about best practices in forensic interviewing. To date, CornerHouse has trained over 23,000 individuals who have come from 48 states and 10 countries seeking forensically sound methods of interviewing children.
