JPL-2010-38-3-03-Fontes, Interviewing Immigrant Children for Suspected Child Maltreatment
This article examines challenges posed in forensic interviews of
immigrant children when there is a suspicion that these children
may be victims of child abuse or neglect. Suggestions are made
for interviewers regarding the interview setting, preparations,
building rapport, conveying respect, narrative training, pacing
the interview, and trauma symptoms that may stem from issues
that are unrelated to the abuse.
