  • A protocol for assessment of preverbal children that is grounded in theory and research
  • A format for assessment of children from three to five years old
  • A review of the strengths and weaknesses of some current interview formats
  • A technique for structured interviewing that surveys a range of touching
  • A procedure for structured reunification of a child and alleged abuser after unproven allegations
