This live webinar on Suggestibility and Trauma in Psycholegal Settings is presented by Jerrod Brown, PhD

Suggestibility is the susceptibility to uncritically accept information, statements, beliefs, and ideas from others as fact. This can lead an individual to develop false memories of events and provide inaccurate information to others. Suggestibility is influenced by several individual and contextual factors. One factor that may increase risk of suggestibility is a history of trauma. Designed for professionals working in psycholegal settings, this training examines the impact trauma and other forms of adversity have on suggestibility risk. This webinar focuses on increasing awareness of the impact trauma has on suggestibility and the implications these topics have on criminal justice, forensic mental health, and legal settings. Special emphasis is placed on implications for interviewing and screening of these topics in psycholegal settings. Empirically based research findings and case study examples will be highlighted throughout this training.
