Child Sexual Abuse Interview Protocol: Evidence-Based Strategies

Explore important developmental and clinical factors to assess whether allegations of child sex abuse are likely to be false or credible.

When a child alleges sex abuse, responses are emotionally charged and range from complete disbelief of the child to total condemnation of the accused offender. Substantiating or refuting allegations of child sex abuse is a process fraught with complex challenges and high stakes outcomes. You will benefit from this information by learning about the guidelines that help structure an appropriate assessment of such allegations and the importance of standardization in evaluation methods. Clinical and forensic roles will be delineated with differences.
