When selecting fillers to include in a police lineup, one must consider the level of similarity between the suspect and potential fillers. In order to reduce misidentifications, an innocent suspect should not stand out. Therefore, it is important that the fillers share some degree of similarity. Importantly, increasing suspect-filler similarity…

In this study, we examine how the issue of considering criminal history in college admissions is represented and constructed as a problem in Ban the Box (BTB) policies in Maryland and Louisiana. We draw on Bacchi's "What's the Problem Represented to be?" approach as an analytic tool to interrogate key policy artifacts such as legislative…

Carlson, Curt A.; Lockamyeir, Robert F.; Wooten, Alex R.; Jones, Alyssa R.; Carlson, Maria A.; Hemby, Jacob A. – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2023
The identification procedure can greatly affect eyewitness performance, but this may be contingent upon a relatively weak memory for the perpetrator. In a large preregistered experiment (N = 13,728), we manipulated memory strength and tested participants with a target-present or -absent showup or lineup (size 3 or 6). All fillers were…

Non-confrontative interventions for those with sexual offenses are grounded in reflexivity, rooted in empathy, and established in a secure therapeutic alliance to address complex treatment needs. This case study describes "The Journey," a strength-based art therapy approach. Upon reflection, four concepts emerged: seeking change, being…

Alexander L. Burton; Haley N. Puddy; Sunmin Hong; Velmer S. Burton Jr.; William T. Miller – Journal of School Violence, 2024
Each year, thousands of prospective students are denied admission to universities because they possess a criminal record.

To date, few studies have examined the perspectives of college students on this matter. The…

Charles P. Chen; Naseem Rine-Reesha – International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, 2024
Ex-offenders in North America and Western Europe face major challenges when re-entering the job market and often remain unemployed for significant periods. Simultaneously, the relatively sparse existent literature regarding career counselling for ex-offenders often fails to incorporate recent research from other relevant fields. This article aims…

Verschuere, Bruno; Schutte, Manon; Opzeeland, Sharon; Kool, Ilona – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2021
Nahari, Vrij, and Fischer [(2014b), "Applied Cognitive Psychology," 28, 122-128] found that, when participants were forewarned that their statements would be checked for verifiable details, truth tellers gave much more verifiable details than liars. In this direct replication (n = 72), participants wrote a statement claiming they had…

A single latent fingerprint consists of ~50 µg of matter for which the anionic content often provides a differentiating characteristic between individuals. This forensic-themed, analytical chemistry experiment exploits this difference and has students employ ion-exchange chromatography to quantitatively analyze the anionic content of both…
