Main objective

An educational tool (instructional video and manual) on judicial interviewing techniques of children will be produced during the project period.


The educational tool will be based on “the dialogic communication method” developed by the researchers during their doctoral thesis “Child Witnesses” (Gamst & Langballe, 2004).

This educational tool is primarily targeted towards police officers- and prosecutors, but also concerns child protective services and the departments- of health and education, in cases where violence, sexual abuse and neglect are suspected.

This developmental project was assigned to NKVTS by the Ministry of Justice and Public Security.
