Documentation of the Interview
The documentation debate revolves around whether or not to video record child assessment interviews. In the 1980s, a videotape of the child’s interview promised to be a solution to the documentation dilemma and a substitute for child testimony in court. Videos haven’t been entirely satisfactory in meeting either goal. This chapter covers various forms of documentation such as audiotaping and note taking, the professional debate about documentation, advantages and disadvantages of videotaping, and offers suggestions about how to and whether to videotape.
