A. Desideri, (L’adozione dell’intervista con foto-stimolazione con minori: accorgimenti e stratagemmi) This essay reflects on ways of carrying out scientific investigations involv- ing children. These reflections emerged during a three­year empirical study on the processes of social categorization, where ninety-six minors were inter- viewed through a photo-stimulation interview. The focus is on the selection and preparation of the detection technique. The photo-stimulated instrument will be analyzed in a comparative key with other detection tools, in order to highlight the potential but also the critical issues. The measures taken to involve minors will also be described.
