tools; closing and documenting the

Originally developed and published to ensure that child abuse evaluators in Oregon were highly skilled and well trained, by summarizing concisely and clearly the accumulated knowledge on interviewing children. Considers such factors as a child's eligibility to be interviewed, interviewer training, a neutral environment, single-versus-multiple interviewers, background information, posing appropriate questions, language, using anatomical dolls and other tools, ending the interview, the non-disclosing child, and custody and visitation disputes.
