Interviewing Children about Sexual Abuse

Kathleen Coulborn Faller

Oxford University Press

A contested issue in interviewing children about sexual abuse is the use of media, props, tools, or aids, as means of communication about abuse. The controversy over media originated with the use of anatomical dolls, that is, dolls with private parts. This chapter discusses the research and practice on anatomical dolls, anatomical drawings, and free drawing. Interviewers may employ other media, but other media lack an empirical base. Indeed, most of the research is on the use of anatomical dolls, which have been the subject of more than one hundred written works.

Keywords:   interview media, interview props, interview tools, interview aids, dolls, anatomical dolls, anatomical drawings, free drawings, gingerbread shapes
