We try to minimize the number of times children must relive their abuse by creating a compassionate, child-friendly environment where a team of investigators can observe a session between a child and one of the Child Advocacy Center’s trained forensic interviewers. The interview is recorded and can be used in court as evidence. Conducting the interviews in this format reduces the likelihood of the child being interviewed multiple times by many different professionals in a variety of locations. Multiple interviews re-traumatize the child by causing them to revisit the abuse. Reducing the number of interviews while being consistent with the interviewer and the interview environment means less trauma to the abused child.
