Extended Forensic Evaluations: Addressing the Needs of Child Victims and Offering Options for Sexual Abuse Investigations (Workshop 96)
The workshop introduces a model that addresses the particular needs of children who are unable or unwilling to freely disclose sexual abuse during the investigative interview, despite supportive information or grounded suspicions of abuse. Presenters illustrate the abuse-related factors that may influence a child's disclosure and changes in practice that can better support this population during the investigative process. The session reviews research on the implementation and practice of the Extended Forensic Evaluation program in a clinical setting.
