Explaining Conversation Rules to Children: An Intervention Study to Facilitate Children's Accurate Responses.
Mulder, Marianne R.; Vrij, Aldert
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n7 p623-31 Jul 1996
This study, with 114 children (ages 4 to 10), examined effects of explaining 2 conversation rules ("I don't know" is an acceptable answer, and the interviewer can't help in answering questions) prior to interviewing children regarding a staged event each child had witnessed. Results suggest that the rules reduce suggestibility and could be useful in interviewing child witnesses. (Author/DB)
