In this webinar, we will feature some of the most notable achievements within the European Barnahus Movement thus far, including highlighting unique experiences, approaches and solutions as developed by the PROMISE 2 partners. This webinar will also showcase the PROMISE tools and future plans which are supporting the continued harmonisation and consolidation of good Barnahus practice across Europe.
This webinar will explore the key considerations to keep in mind when selecting and setting up your interview recording system, including:
Proving authenticity, in a world where ‘deep fakes’ are becoming exceedingly easy to produce;
Proving the child was not influenced during the interview;
Building trust in the evidence recording procedure from day 1;
Ensuring data is readable long into the future, and that secure access is possible on demand;
Planning for the storage requirements of exponential growth in interview files;
Join this webinar to walk through the PROMISE Child participation tool with the authors, and to discuss with your European colleagues about approaches and considerations for soliciting children’s views on their Barnahus experience. The tool focuses on the child’s experience of Barnahus.
