Abstract

In belgium, police officers are obliged to attend advanced training in interviewing children. Research suggests training is not sufficient to acquire and maintain skills, but follow-up is also required. The present study aims to examine the influence of the type of follow-up (individual follow-up, collective follow-up and no follow-up) on the overall quality of procedure in interviewing children.* results show that police officers receiving individual follow-up perform significantly better in comparison with those who have received collective follow-up or no follow-up at all.
