Format: Paperback
An excellent guide to the state of current knowledge about memory, suggestibility, and unsuitable vs. suitable information-eliciting techniques, with regard to children's testimony. This book is distinguished from others on the same topic by the scientific reputations of the editors and chapter authors, as well as the cautious approach. Fits in very well with current Supreme Court strictures on the admissibility of expert/science based testimony---Daubert, Joiner, & Kumho decisions.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Going into a hearing or court without being informed and prepared increases risk of being WRONGFULLY Convicted when totally INNOCENT because of FALSE Allegations and criminal charges by someone hateful and out to traumatically hurt, destroy, and remove the existence of a parent and others while traumatically abusing CHILDREN as "weapons of war" to do so.

Information is invaluable. Being informed and prepared is required BEFORE being FALSELY Accused because of totally absurd legal deadlines (statutes of limitations) and the fact that a FALSE Arrest based totally on FALSE Allegations (perjury and lies) generally gets INNOCENT people incarcerated with a hearing the next morning in some court to immediately remove and forever deny all information, truth, contact, rights, freedoms, and ability to provide an appropriate legal defense!

Those who blindly ignore realities and choose to remain uninformed and then choose to abandon and avoid someone FALSELY ACCUSED and WRONGFULLY Convicted generally have no idea what can be involved or why; and just don't care as long as it does not involved them personally. But when it happens to them or to someone they love and care about, THEN it is too late to get informed and prepare for an appropriate defense BEFORE being arrested and forever destroyed!

This textbook really is the only consolidated source of information on children's testimony. Yes, it's dated, but the information in it is still really valuable! On a side note, a second edition is "in the works" :)
