About this title


Contingent on funding being available, a Festschrift will be held in honor of Dr. John Yuille’s career as a Forensic Psychologist. He has become one of the most visible and respected Canadian psychologists worldwide. In light of his upcoming retirement in December 2006, the Festschrift will recognize Dr. Yuille’s achievements in the areas of eyewitness memory research (i.e., pioneering a new research paradigm that grants better validity), investigative interviewing (i.e., the development and use of the Step Wise Interview Protocol), and credibility assessment (i.e., introducing Statement Validity Analysis to North America). New directions for future work will be explored at the workshop. The focus of this Festschrift will be three-fold:

1. International. Dr. Yuille’s work has influenced law enforcement practices and stimulated research in and outside of Canada. The international and multicultural aspects of the work that Dr. Yuille has inspired will be reflected and promoted by this workshop.

2. Interdisciplinary. Dr. Yuille is internationally known as an expert, consultant and trainer to law enforcement. As such, Dr. Yuille’s work has also influenced other disciplines, e.g., the law, social work, oral history. The participants of this Festschrift will gain insight into other professionals’ perspectives and foster potential collaborations on future projects.

3. Emphasis on applied research. A hallmark of Dr. Yuille’s research has been the application of field and archival methods, which made his work directly applicable to forensically relevant contexts. The potential future directions of applied forensic research will be discussed at this Festschrift.

The importance of the subject at this time:

- A lack of integrative models in the literatures of eyewitness memory and the assessment of truthfulness and deception. Presenters of the Festschrift have recently developed such models and will discuss them at the Festschrift. Publishing these models and their discussions will spark further research to validate or modify them.

- New, pioneering field research based on such integrative models has recently been conducted. This book would be one of the first publications of the results.

From the Back Cover:

Victims. Witnesses. Suspects. Answers to an interviewer’s questions may mean the difference between prison or freedom, custody or loss, justice served or justice miscarried–outcomes that depend on expert decision-making as much as on the answers themselves.

Meticulously researched and reasoned by an international panel of experts from across the criminal justice fields, Applied Issues in Investigative Interviewing, Eyewitness Memory, and Credibility Assessment illustrates areas and strategies for improvement in this complex legal arena. The book begins by arguing for the need for field research in studying eyewitness memory, and subsequent chapters bear this out ably in issues such as biopsychosocial phenomena of memory, why inconsistent testimony may not necessarily equal deceit, and the challenges and opportunities digital technology poses in evaluating truthfulness. Throughout, the book’s theories, critiques, models, and tools are informed not only by the behavioral sciences but by the real-world experience of law enforcement and judicial professionals. Among the topics covered:

· Credibility assessment, common law trials, and fuzzy logic.

· Errors made by investigative interviewers and suggestions for redress.

· Children’s memory in “scientific case studies” of child sexual abuse.

· Repeated interviews about repeated trauma from the distant past.

· The contextualization of words by expert lie detectors.

Applied Issues in Investigative Interviewing, Eyewitness Memory, and Credibility Assessment will find an interested audience among investigative interviewers, law enforcement professionals, clinical and forensic psychologists, lawyers, and judges looking to integrate more substantial psychological knowledge into this critical area of legal practice.
