Overview

The assessment and improvement of eyewitness testimony of children is the topic of this volume. The first section examines factors that contribute to the reliability and accuracy of testimony, including the effects of extended delays, repeated questioning and exposure to leading questions.

The final chapters focus on policy issues, including psychological research designed to guide legal reforms for accommodating child witnesses into the legal system.
