Child Study and Treatment Center Forensic Services

Most children who receive our forensic evaluations are interviewed at Child Study and Treatment Center. The children we evaluate are living at home, in some type of facility, or are being held in custody in a detention center while they are waiting for their legal case to be finished. Parents, guardians, care providers, or detention staff transports the child to CSTC, where they are interviewed for a few hours by one of CSTC's forensic evaluators. Given certain factors, some children held in custody may be interviewed at the detention center.
