All people appearing in the videos on this website were child victim professionals or volunteers who gave their informed consent or assent to appear. We thank them and express our deep appreciation for their contributions to this learning course.

The minor children appearing in the videos were volunteers who appeared with parental consent, and for privacy their names are not listed. None of the children was known to have experienced violence or victimization, and the accounts they provide are simulations and are not based on actual experiences.

Throughout the development process, ChildVictimWeb was reviewed and tested by many professionals across the country. We would like to thank all of the reviewers, testers, and others that contributed to this learning resource.
