A Forensic Interview Protocol for Adult Sexual Assault: Content Validity and Consumer Acceptability
Volume 21 Num. 2 - June 2021 - Pages 133-147
This study examined the content validity and consumer satisfaction of a newly developed forensic interviewing protocol and accompanying barriers screen. Results suggest content experts rated the protocol as acceptable and that subjects rated the protocol slightly more favorably than the Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview. Further, although only a minority of subjects did not like the alternative hypotheses component, this component did not significantly decrease subjects’ favorable attitudes towards the protocol, suggesting that incorporating this element may not be as controversial as previously assumed. Last, providing resources to the victim via the barriers screen was rated favorably by participants, suggesting that this might be a useful tool to improve victim’s sense of support, overall satisfaction and possible willingness to pursue prosecution post-assault.
