Child maltreatment is a major societal problem. In the United States, over four million cases of child maltreatment are investigated each year (Pipe, Lamb, Orbach, & Cederborg, 2007a). Propelled by a rash of high-proﬁle infamous childcare and satanic ritualistic abuse cases from the 1980s and 1990s, a corpus of research has emerged to outline the interview contexts that help and hinder children’s reports of past events. In this chapter, we review contemporary research ﬁndings on factors aﬀecting the reliability of children’s forensic reports. In the ﬁrst half of the chapter, we review the literature on autobiographical memory and suggestibility. In the second half of the chapter, we review contemporary research ﬁndings regarding whether and how sexually abused children tend to tell others about the abuse.
