About this title

From the Back Cover:

"In spite of the increasing array of materials available on the subject of child sexual abuse, there is a need for a skills-based, hands-on, practical handbook for professionals who evaluate these cases. Melissa Steinmetz has written such a book, and it is a welcome additions to a body of literature which is more often geared toward those who think and talk, than those who do this work. An experienced interviewer and gifted instructor, Steinmetz has combined her own expertise with a wealth of useful information, case examples, transcripts, outlines, teaching aides and assessment materials. She has simplified much of the relevant research, clinical knowledge and forensic wisdom into a cookie jar of useful tidbits. Interviewers, this is your book." - Kee MacFarlane, M.S.W., Author, trainer, and national consultant "Interviewing for Child Sexual Abuse is one of the first books which offers professionals in the filed practical information on conducting forensically defensible interviews. Steinmetz, a well respected lecturer and practitioner, details useful techniques for gathering specific information from child victims/witnesses for an investigation. As we continue to increase our understanding of the complexity of interviewing abused and neglected children, this book encourages the reduction of secondary systematic trauma to victims and their families. It is an important step in promoting a sensitive and competent environment for young victims of abuse." - Lisa Fey Williams, M.S.W., Giarretto Institute

" I was impressed with how comprehensive and thorough the material was. The book covers so many of the "pitfalls" that are encountered in Forensic Interviewing, and how to both avoid and deal with them. I feel that this will be an invaluable resource to not only the new interviewer but the seasoned veteran as well." Ed Hudson, D.A. Investigator, Sonoma County District Attorneys Office

"This work exemplifies the multidisciplinary spirit, and illuminates the need to be both legally defensible and child sensitive in evaluating possible abuse victims. Steinmetz has blended sound empirical knowledge with field generated experience to create a book which can benefit researchers and practitioners alike." - Connie Carnes, Director, Intervention Services, National Child Advocacy Center

"This book provides a standard of excellence for interviewing children who are victims of child sexual abuse. It incorporates social science research with the practicalities of conducting an interview. Law enforcement officials, child protection service workers and prosecutors should be reading the book and implementing the strategies." - Betty Brewe, Director, LaPorte County (Indiana) Child Abuse Prevention Council
