Description:
For sexually abused children, specific aspects of the criminal justice system (CJS) such as multiple pre-trial investigative interviews, forensic medical examination, waiting for court, lengthy litigation, and court proceedings which are not child-centred have all been found to adversely affect many children in the short term and a minority of children in the long term (Hall & Sales, 2008; Quas et al., 2005). A small but growing body of research supports the use of certain practices to reduce the CJS-related distress of sexually abused children. These include multidisdplinary team investigations, trained child forensic interviewers, videotaped interviews, specialized forensic medical examiners, victim advocacy programs, improved access to mental health treatment for victims, and children's advocacy centres (Jones et al., 2005
