Minimal Facts Guidelines

The “Minimal Facts Guidelines” document by the Northeast Regional Children’s Advocacy Center (NRCAC), is a vital resource for professionals at Children’s Advocacy Centers (CACs) who conduct forensic interviews with children. It outlines the importance of gathering just enough information to determine the next steps without compromising the integrity of the child’s testimony. The guidelines emphasize the need for a neutral, fact-finding approach and provide practical steps for interviewers to follow. This ensures that all necessary facts are collected in a manner that is both child-sensitive and legally sound, ultimately aiding in the protection of children and the pursuit of justice.
