Full Description:   

This program, hosted by Kee McFarlane is a detailed outline of the practices, procedures and knowledge needed to conduct a clinical interview of a child who may have been sexually abused. McFarlane and her associates use demonstration interviews to describe key areas to address -- Determining the nature of the child by using correct level of development in language, cognition, social, and emotional the child has obtained. Knowledge of the best means to communicate with the child is stressed as are knowing about the history of the child and her/his family (i.e. family status, significant adults, names/nicknames, daily routines, adults with private access, school grade level, problems in school, disclosure (of abuse) time/place, and events surrounding disclosure. Notes: Script developed by Kee MacFarlane, Sandy Krebs, and Joy Jacot. Child Developments consultants were Karen Saywitz, PhD; Ian Russ M.A., and Linda Damon, PhD. Sandra Baker of the Sacramento, Ca. Child Center and Roland Summit M.D. offer some insights of interview technique and legal ramifications of cases.
