Interviewing Children for investigative purposes is a specialized skill. Professional interviewers need to be able to conduct interviews that bear scrutiny from outside agencies and also serve the best interests of children. In clear, engaging language, this book corrects the common misunderstandings about adult-child conversational exchanges and provides guidelines for interviewers, based on the most up-to-date research. It also presents a flexible interview protocol that can be tailored to meet individual needs. Investigative Interviews of Children will be invaluable not only to child protection workers, lawyers, law enforcement officers, and psychologists, but also to other mental health professionals, educators, and parents.
