Child Forensic Interview: A child forensic interview is a neutral, legally sound fact-finding interview. Ideally, child forensic interviews are conducted in a child-friendly setting or environment by a professional person specifically trained to take a child’s statement. Child forensic interviewing skills include knowledge of child development, cultural competence, and how children use language. In many places child forensic interviews are observed by investigators over a closed circuit TV system or through a one way mirror, but the child only talks to one person. Many child forensic interviews are recorded to a DVD.
