Avoiding Issues of Taint with the Child Client

General Material

"Taint is the term Jablonski (as cited in Commonwealth v. Delbridge, 2003) uses to describe the implantation of false memories or the distortion of real memories through suggestive interview techniques. While there is no way to fully guard against the challenges of taint, there are steps that sexual assault centers can take to decrease the likelihood that communication between a child and a sexual assault counselor will be called into question."
