The Impact of Court on Children: Research Findings and Practical Recommendations.
Lipovsky, Julie A.
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v9 n2 p238-57 Jun 1994
Reviews research concerning how frequently children testify in court, whether testifying is harmful, and which innovations in practice reduce children's court-related stress. The studies reviewed consistently demonstrate that many, but not all, children find the court process distressing, but the effects are not long lasting. Innovations include parent and/or child education, and stress management techniques. (JPS)
