Abstract:     
This chapter is a brief overview of research-supported child interviewing strategies that can maximize the quality and quantity of information produced by children when questioned about abuse. I discuss the need to use open-ended questions, instructions, and practice narratives, and the importance of avoiding age-inappropriate questions regarding number and time.
