Overview

In this volume, Kevin McConkey and Peter Sheehan draw from their extensive research to examine the use of hypnosis in criminal investigation. In addition to exploring the reliability of hypnotically recovered memory, this book covers a broad range of other significant technical, clinical, ethical, and legal issues - including the inadequacy of current guidelines for research and practice, and the ethical concerns professionals must deal with when using hypnosis in criminal investigation. Written for a broad professional audience, this volume explicitly illustrates the complexities involved in using hypnosis in forensic settings and lays the groundwork for more carefully drawn guidelines in this area of professional practice. The book opens with an illuminating overview of the use of hypnosis in criminal investigation, focusing in particular on its use with witnesses and victims of crime. Early on, the authors set forth the guidelines they developed based on their extensive experience and the available psychological and legal literature on the subject. They then examine specific court cases, showing how each illustrates a different use of forensic hypnosis. Although the cases are set in Australia, each was chosen on the basis of its relevance to any forensic system worldwide, and the book takes care to reference literature in the world arena. The book explores the controversial and murky area of hypnotically refreshed memory, presenting specific strategies for dealing with reports of recovered memories of abuse. The final chapters address some of the essential pragmatics of working within a system that can place many different demands on professionals. The authors discuss the major implications of their research, offering cogent recommendations for practice.

The book contains no figures.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Alexander E. Obolsky, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book articulates, evaluates, and offers comment on psychological issues raised by the use of hypnosis in forensic settings.
Purpose: The authors achieve their objectives well through the use of rich case material as well as thorough review of laboratory research. Additionally, the authors offer thoughts on the obligations, requirements, and rights of those involved in the forensic setting, and they argue strongly for detailed guidelines to be used whenever hypnosis is used in forensics.
Audience: The audience for this book would have been limited to practitioners only, were it not for its exiting case studies. I recommend it to students in psychiatry and psychology in addition to practitioners.
Features: The authors review the known scientific evidence on the interrelationship among hypnosis, suggestibility, and memory, and they offer sound advice regarding repressed memories in clinical and forensic settings. Their guidelines for the use of hypnosis in forensic settings are well argued and merit serious consideration.
Assessment: This is an excellent volume where authors combine the richness of a case study with laboratory research findings in a useful and interesting way. The clarity of thinking and the ability to synthesize research, case studies, and the reality of forensic practice make this a welcome addition to a forensic professional's library.
