  • Remain calm
  • Be a listener, not an investigator
  • Be sensitive and supportive
  • Tell them you believe them
  • Reassure them they are not in trouble
  • Talk about their right to be safe
  • Inform the Department of Child Safety and/or the Queensland Police Child Protection Investigation Unit (CPIU)
