(p.66) SEVEN Interview Structure, Protocol, and Guidelines
Interviewing Children about Sexual Abuse

Kathleen Coulborn Faller

Oxford University Press

The phases or stages of the child interview have been the focus of numerous guidelines, some informative research, and a great deal of opinion. Employing an interview structure that is evidence-based, comports with best practice, and yet accommodates the needs of the individual child is a challenge. This chapter conceptualizes interview structures along a continuum of perscriptiveness. Taking both the research and practice literature, it discusses the chronology of an interview, describing components that are recommended at various phases of the interview and their empirical support. Finally, the chapter presents advantages and disadvantages of structured interview protocols.

Keywords:   interviewing protocols, interviewing guidelines, phased interviews, evidence-based
