Here, Dr. Deryn Strange joins IBPP editor Richard Bloom in a discussion of distorted memories for traumatic events, repression and repressed memory, memory distrust syndrome, deception and self-deception as a contaminant in memory research with forensic implications, recovered memory, false confessions, and the 'bait question' as a differentiator of truth versus falsehood in interrogation. [The discussion ends prematurely through an IBPP technical malfunction. One missing element vital to college students who might wish to pursue a career in forensic psychology is Dr. Strange's strong recommendation to master the basics of experimental methodology and statistics].
Dr. Deryn Strange is a Professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Her research program is focused on memory distortion and its impact.
