This is an essential area of competence for the ever-increasing range of professionals working with children who have experienced adversity or abuse. This book provides a comprehensive and well-organised summary of the area, and is relevant to all those who may communicate with vulnerable children, including professionals from health, education, welfare and the law. It describes the process of enabling children to communicate freely and honestly, and to impart reliable and accurate information. The book is based on relevant research and clinical experience. As well, it has been carefully edited by an advisory board from the Department of Health and the Family Division of the High Court of Justice in the United Kingdom, with the aim of improving practice and reducing the amount of malpractice in communication with children.
