Use of How/Why/How Come in Investigative Interviews with Very Young Suspected Victims of Sexual Abuse

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The range of possible uses and interpretations of How/Why/How Come (HWHC) makes it critical to examine their use in investigative interviews with very young children who are lacking in communicative competence. In this study, 3 to 5-year-old suspected victims of sexual abuse were interviewed by detectives. HWHC prompts represented 22% of all interviewer prompts (M= 8.6) and yielded 9% of details provided by children. Confused (20%) or resistant (18%) responses to HWHC prompts were relatively common. Older children were more likely to respond to HWHC by seeking information. HWHC prompts may not be worth their risk when interviewing young children.
