dc.description.abstractChild sexual abuse is a growing concern in the United States. The investigative process in such cases serves great importance to the outcome of the case and the child's well being. Investigative interviews in such cases should be conducted in such a way that facilitates recall and minimizes high levels of suggestion in the interviews. There are significant problems in the field of investigative interviewing that cause road blocks in the route to successful interviews. Through proper training and education, techniques can be used to decrease suggestion and maximize recall in the interview. A case study is examined in this paper that demonstrates the difficulties of conducting a proper investigative interview. Further suggestions are made to better the realm of investigative interviewing.en_US
