Exploring Nonoffending Caregiver Satisfaction with a Children's Advocacy Center
Bonach, Kathryn; Mabry, J. Beth; Potts-Henry, Candice
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v19 n6 p687-708 2010
This study is a case evaluation research report on one Children's Advocacy Center that provides a coordinated response to allegations of child maltreatment, particularly sexual abuse. The data come from a mailed survey of nonoffending caregivers measuring their satisfaction with services provided through the Children's Advocacy Center. The results indicate overall satisfaction with the Children's Advocacy Center; however, they also suggest that the forensic interview may be perceived or experienced as distinct from the ongoing investigative and legal processes. Recommendations are made to better assess nonoffending caregiver satisfaction with Children's Advocacy Center services and to encourage consumer driven service improvement. (Contains 2 notes and 4 tables.)
