Fourteen interviewers conducted 51 investigations of child sexual abuse with children (ages 4.5 to 12.9 years). Interviewers used a script including either open-ended questions or direct questions. Both rapport-building scripts took about seven minutes. Children who had received the open-ended training provided twice as many details and words during the later, more substantive portion of the interview. (DB)
