Interviewing Children - Video and Manual
Interviewing Children is a training video for child welfare social workers and forensic interviewers who are conducting abuse investigative interviews of children. Produced in 2009 by PACCA, the video demonstrates current best practices in interviewing protocols (based on the Step-Wise model developed by Dr. John Yuille). This training video utilizes a unique approach; skilled child welfare practitioners conduct the interviews in real time, with children who are improvising the role of an abused child. The result is a powerful and realistic portrayal of how interviews unfold under best practices, with natural and spontaneous responses from children at different ages and stages of development. The cost of the video is $50 to cover production costs and shipping.
