Understanding Interviewing from the Victim's Point of View - Helping Child Abuse Victims Make Sense of their Experiences. None of us chooses to be a victim of crime, and despite what we know about trauma, it can still be hard for professionals to be accepting of victims many struggles. This presentation will address why victims often do not tell about their experiences. If they do, they may not give a full account, and the details may not emerge in a linear style. As interviewers and professional helpers, we need to understand why this happens and how we can adjust our interventions to facilitate healing and obtain whatever disclosure there may be available.
