Mount Nittany Health is pleased to announce the addition of Kimberly Saltsman, MA, forensic interviewer, to the Children’s Advocacy Center.
Saltsman obtained a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and a master’s degree in forensic psychology from the University of Denver.
Previously employed by CenClear Child Services, Inc. in Philipsburg, Pa., Saltsman worked as a behavior specialist consultant, mobile therapist, outpatient therapist and psychological assistant to provide treatment services, such as therapy sessions, to children and families who need physical, social, emotional and educational support.
In her role as forensic interviewer at the Children’s Advocacy Center, Saltsman conducts child friendly interviews, in which children are invited to tell their story about abuse or neglect they have experienced or witnessed. Information gathered from the interview aids in the criminal investigation and is used to assess the wellbeing of the child to ensure they are provided with adequate support in their healing process.
The Children’s Advocacy Center, located at 129 Medical Park Lane in Bellefonte, Pa., provides a centralized location for all necessary services, including medical services for children who have suffered neglect, abuse or witnessed abuse.
