Subject:Re: Child forensic interviews and trauma

Hello, There is an older literature on children's reactions to forensic interviews that we cite in my 1992 SRCD Monograph on children's reactions to testifying in criminal court in child sexual abuse cases. I think we also report some relevant findings from our own study as well. As the Monograph is long, I can send it to your university email address if you like, rather than bulk up everyone's email account. My email address is below. Drs. David Finklehor and Lisa Jones at the University of New Hampshire likely have relevant current data. Cheers, Gail Goodman Professor of Psychology ggoodman@ucdavis.edu On Tue, Feb 6, 2018 at 6:04 PM, Tamara Hurst > wrote: Greetings, I am working with a social work graduate student who wants to explore if forensic interviews of children and recall of adverse childhood experiences inadvertently re-traumatizes the victims. I asked her to review the literature for studies that are similar to her research question but she has not found any. This surprises me. Does anyone know of studies that measure potential trauma experienced by children through the forensic interview process? Thank you for your help. Tamara Tamara E.
