MacFarland, Wendy L.; Morris, Steven J.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v45 n2 p225-29 Apr 1998
Dysphoric individuals are shown to be susceptible to interrogative suggestion, whether in the form of leading questions or interrogative pressure. The association of a clinically relevant condition of dysphoria (depression) with relatively high levels of suggestibility was investigated in a college student population (N=139). Applicability to therapy is discussed. (EMK)
