Interviewing a victim as part of a psychological evaluation for the court

Working with law enforcement and need information to help in the prosecution of a crime

Some of the factors possibly influencing people’s reactions to their traumatic experiences and their receptivity to certain manners of interviewing include:

Age, gender, and sexual orientation

Religious or spiritual beliefs and background

Cultural or ethnic background

Education and intellectual functioning

Physical illnesses
