In this presentation to the Queensland branch of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Psychiatry, Psychology and Law (ANZAPPL), Dr Nina Westera covers how evidence-based practice in the interviewing of adult complainants of sexual assault can be used to improve the investigation and prosecution in these types of cases.
