(p.50) FIVE Number of Child Interviews
Interviewing Children about Sexual Abuse

Kathleen Coulborn Faller

Oxford University Press

Child welfare resources typically dictate the number of interviews children receive before a decision is made about the likelihood of sexual abuse, this is usually one interview. This chapter considers relevant research, which suggests that the number of interviews should vary depending upon where the child is in the disclosure process, whether the assessor is trying only to determine abuse or has additional goals, whether the child is safe, how old the child is, and whether the child has mental health problems.

Keywords:   one interview, multiple interviews, single interview, number of interviews, mental health problems, disclosure process
