Abstract

BRITO, Leila Maria Torraca de  and  PARENTE, Daniella Coelho. Judicial inquiry of children: points and counterpoints. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2012, vol.24, n.1, pp. 178-186. ISSN 0102-7182.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-71822012000100020.

The proposal that psychologists and social workers carry out judicial inquiry of children through the technique called Testimony without damage (DSD), has been discussed in several scientific events and national publications, as it is in the pipeline bill that provides rules of procedure. Starting from a reference literature produced in recent years about the issue in the article were systematized the arguments used on a recurring basis to justify deployment of DSD and the questions and analysis that they generate. The counterpoint between the information shows the need for further reflection on this complex issue, recognizing that fixed positions for or against the technique can contribute by bringing the discussion.

Keywords : judicial inquiry of children; testimonial without damage; forensic psychology.
