Posted: 9 May 2009 Last revised: 26 Feb 2010
This short piece addresses criticisms of the NICHD Structured Protocol for interviewing children by Vieth (2008), published in a previous issue of Child Abuse & Neglect. We demonstrate that his criticisms are unwarranted and discuss how interviews conducted following the Protocol are legally and psychologically acceptable.
