New textbook on children as witnesses and victims

Child Forensic Psychology

Dr Robyn Holliday from our School of Psychology has collaborated and co-authored a book with a Canadian academic, Tammy Marche.

The book, Child Forensic Psychology is set to be published next month and is important reading for those seeking to understand children as witnesses and as victims in forensic psychology. It is ideal for both students and practitioners of both developmental and forensic psychology and uses real life crime cases to illustrate theory and practices.

In previous research, Dr Robyn Holliday conducted experiments at  Cornell’s Memory and Neuroscience Laboratory that show that experiences that stimulate negative emotions can be bad for the accuracy of children’s memories, and possibly worse for the accuracy of adults.

The book will be published in December, click here to pre-order the book:
