Editorial: Interviews with Children Suspected of Sexual Abuse.
Jones, David P. H.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n11 p1111-12 Nov 1996
This editorial comments on a study (EC 614 974) concerning interviews with children suspected to be victims of sexual abuse which eliminated interviewer bias and possible leading questioning. It supports further research into the effectiveness of "blind interviews" but also urges major changes in arrangements for obtaining children's evidence on such topics as sexual abuse. (DB)
