Minimal Facts Interviews of Children and Panel

Following an initial report of alleged child abuse, basic information should be collected to determine whether maltreatment has likely occurred. As part of a multidisciplinary approach, law enforcement and child protective services must establish contact with the child, collect preliminary case information and assess child safety, the risk of imminent danger and the need for immediate medical attention, generally within a mandated time frame.

Learning Objectives: Describe the differences between a forensic interview and a minimal fact or screening interview, identify essential information to obtain in a minimal fact interview, discuss a process for gathering information from children in a less than ideal interview environment.

Presented by Andra Chamberlin, MS, National Children’s Advocacy Center (via webinar) & Cindy Riddell, LMSW, Child Assessment Director, Sunflower House
