Stephen J. Ceci on Suggestibility - Dictionary of Arguments
Slater I 103
Suggestibility/children/Ceci/Bruck: (Ceci & Bruck 1993)(1) attributed the re-emergence of the problem of false testimonies in psychological research to four factors:
1) increased admissibility of expert psychological testimony;
2) social scientists’ desire to conduct research on relevant issues of the time, including issues related to social activism such as civil rights;
3) the legal community’s search for data relating to child witnesses as a result of increases in the number of reported crimes involving child victims; and
4) lastly as a logical continuation of research on adult eyewitness testimony.
