Investigative interviewing of children : barriers to adopting 'best-practice' guidelines
thesisposted on 2006-01-01, 00:00 authored by Rebecca. Wright
This research examined the global difficulties of investigative interviewers in adhering to best-practice guidelines (i.e. open-ended questions) when interviewing children about abuse. It demonstrated that the importance of, and rationale for, using open-ended questions is not well understood by investigative interviewers, nor are they adequately reinforced with police organisations.
