Mother Knows Best: Effects of Relationship Status and Interviewer Bias on Children's Memory.
Goodman, Gail S.; And Others
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v60 n1 p195-228 Aug 1995
Examined whether interviewer status or a preconceived bias affects children's memory and suggestibility or adults' descriptions of children's reports. Analyses revealed children's free recall accuracy suffered when they were interviewed by biased versus unbiased strangers but not when interviewed by biased versus unbiased mothers. Exposure to the biasing misinformation led to greater inaccuracy in interviewers' descriptions. (AA)
