Welcome to the Team
January 20, 2022
The team at Children’s Cove was joined last month by a new member to support the mission of the organization. Over the last several years, Children’s Cove has seen a steady increase of referrals from our multidisciplinary partners across Cape Cod, Nantucket, and Martha’s Vineyard. To meet this rising need, Children’s Cove have hired Lauren Journet as a Forensic Interviewer. Lauren has joined the Victims Services team and will working directly with child victims and their non-offending caregivers to support their healthiest outcome.
Lauren grew up on Cape Cod and has focused her studies and career in the human services field. Lauren is passionate about being an advocate for children and working towards creating a safe and stable community environment for children to learn and grow. Lauren joins us after previously working at the Department of Children and Families in Plymouth.
As a Forensic Interviewer, Lauren will be leading one of the critical roles at Children’s Cove. The forensic interview is a multidisciplinary team approach to taking a child’s statement following a disclosure of abuse. The interview is a neutral, non-leading, developmentally sensitive, fact-finding process to maximize the amount of information needed for an investigation but done in a way which minimizes the trauma to the child.
Lauren will be receiving her specialized training to become a forensic interviewer in the next month and is meeting and engaging with MDT members and participating in current cases as an observer until that time.
