Systematic Touch Exploration as a Screening Procedure for Child Abuse: A Pilot Study.
Hewitt, Sandra K.; Arrowood, Alice A.
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v3 n2 p31-43 1994
Presents a systematic touch exploration format for screening child abuse. The technique involves simple drawings with child participation that review forms of touching in a child's life and screens for physical and emotional abuse as well. Comparisons between screening outcomes and completed case conclusions indicate a bias toward underreporting of abuse in a pilot study. (JPS)
