Components of Child and Parent Interviews in Cases of Alleged Sexual Abuse.
Hibbard, Roberta A.; Hartman, Georgia L.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v17 n4 p495-500 Jul-Aug 1993
Medical, social, law enforcement, legal, and mental health professionals (n=579) indicated what components they included in their interviews of sexual abuse victims and their parents. Results suggest some professional bias in interview components and the need for more than one interview for a thorough evaluation. A more interdisciplinary approach is also proposed. (Author/DB)
