Description:
This paper aims to inform practitioners and service managers of what is considered best practice in conducting investigative interviews for allegations of child sexual abuse (CSA). At present, research is at an early stage of identifying what constitutes best practice and, as a result, research evidence is in some cases preliminary (Jones, Cross, Walsh, & Simone, 2005). This article will first address the interview itself, and then other issues secondary to the interviewing process such as presence/absence of a supportive person, use of dolls and human figure drawings, video recording, access to medical and mental health interventions, victim advocacy support programmes, and interdisciplinary team investigations.
