In the past ten years, there has been an explosion in research into children’s testimony, especially focusing on false memory syndrome and children’s suggestibility. This text makes a major contribution to debates about children’s credibility in the courtroom, by examining them from the perspective of memory development. Written to be accessible to both students and practitioners, the book provides a comprehensive and well–organized review of the latest applied research on children’s testimony, connecting it with different models of memory development. A broad range of topics is covered, including the emergence of autobiographical memory, children’s recollection of traumatic events, individual and developmental differences, and sources of distortion of autobiographical memory. Throughout the text, the authors take care to draw out the practical implications for the courtroom, and a final section focuses on how to assess the accuracy of children’s reports.
