BRITO, Leila Maria Torraca de. Tell me now... No damage deposition under analysis. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2008, vol.20, n.2, pp. 113-125. ISSN 0103-5665.

Under a theoretical argumentation, this article approaches the so called - "no damage deposition", a procedural act that some defend to obtain testimonies from children. This is a possibility for child and youngsters, settled in special rooms equipped with video cameras and microphones to be interrogated, in judicial proceedings, by psychologists and social assistants. In this paper, we present the arguments of those who look forward to its approval as a statute, as it has already been proposed, in the Brazilian Senate, and also of others who oppose this practice. Herein are described arguments from professionals from other countries in the world, who analyze their similar procedures. We conclude that this practice is inadequate, especially when seen as an attribution of psychologists.

Keywords : no damage deposition; youth deposition; juridical psychology.
