Child Victim Witness Protocol (San Diego Regional Child Victim Witness Task Force – 2000)

Protocols | June 1, 1991
Author: Other

This protocol is intended to provide guidelines and assistance to those persons who come into contact with the child victim-witness. This includes those persons involved in cases falling under the Indian Child Welfare Act (25 U.S.C. § 1901 et seq.), wherein an Indian tribe may intervene and participate on the behalf of the eligible member (victim-witness) in a child dependency proceeding. The suggestions in the protocol are offered not as the “be all and end all” in the child abuse field, nor would these guidelines apply in all circumstances. However, it is hoped that the sensitivity to which this protocol speaks will be applied to any situation where the child is a victim or a witness.

Clinical Guide: Adverse Childhood Experiences

Articles or Reports | June 11, 2014
Author: Other

The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) research is some of the most important in our field. There’s little related to forensic healthcare that isn’t impacted by the results of Dr. Felitti, Dr. Anda and their colleagues. It would be virtually impossible to include all of the information available on ACEs, but I have tried to provide a good sampling of resources. If all else fails, follow the PubMed search at the bottom of this guide for the most comprehensive and current science.

Book | January 1, 1997
Author: Other

COLOR ATLAS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT is a clinical resource for practitioners who assess and treat sexually assaulted adolescents and adults. The atlas presents color photographs of injuries of the internal and external genitalia, anus, and mouth, which are magnified for distinct visualization of the injury, providing critical visual aid to the accurate physical diagnosis of sexual abuse. Also included are many photographs of normal anatomy of the adult genitalia, as well as typical variations that may be found, to contrast with the photos of sexual assault victims. The text provides findings in consensual intercourse, which are critical for comparison to assault injury. There is detailed description of the assessment of the sexually assaulted individual, including the physical and emotional aspects. Rape trauma syndrome is included. Four actual case studies of sexual assault victims are presented, along with photographs of their injuries.

Condom Trace Evidence: A New Factor in Sexual Assault Investigations

Articles or Reports | May 1, 1996
Author: Other

Forensic experts typically identify sexual assault offenders by examining seminal fluid residues for sperm, proteins, blood grouping factors, and DNA profile. When sexual assailants use condoms, however, assuming no leaks or spills, this valuable evidence gets trapped inside the condom, which investigators may never recover. The same can be said for any traces from the victim–including vaginal cells, blood, and saliva–that otherwise might have been transferred to the assailant’s penis.
