Child Sexual Abuse Suspicions: Treatment Considerations during Investigation
Kuehnle, Kathryn; Connell, Mary
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v19 n5 p554-571 2010
This article addresses what, if any, psychotherapeutic interventions should be provided to meet the emotional and clinical needs of alleged child victims of sexual abuse while they await judicial determinations from the family, dependency, or criminal courts. The discussion emphasizes that to minimize iatrogenic outcomes, professionals involved in sexual abuse allegation cases should carefully establish and maintain professional role boundaries and take on only one role in a case. Professional roles may include an investigative forensic interviewer, court appointed forensic evaluator, and therapist. Special attention is given to complex issues that arise in child custody cases with allegations of child sexual abuse in family court. (Contains 2 notes.)
