This webinar on Suggestibility Among Individuals with Neurobehavioral and Neurocognitive Disorders is presented by Jerrod Brown, PhD.

Neurobehavioral and neurocognitive disorders may result from brain diseases (e.g., multiple sclerosis and dementia), injury (e.g., traumatic brain injuries), or other genetic and environmental causes. These disorders are often characterized by impairments in executive function, memory, behavioral control, and social and adaptive functioning. As a result of these ranging symptoms, neurobehavioral and neurocognitive disorders may predispose an individual to suggestibility. This vulnerability is very concerning in forensic and legal settings where the risk of suggestibility is exacerbated by situational features such as repeated and leading questioning. Consequences of such disturbances in legal settings can be as serious as false confessions and wrongful convictions. This webinar is intended to increase familiarity with the potential role of neurobehavioral and neurocognitive disorders in suggestibility. Topics addressed include defining neurobehavioral and neurocognitive disorders, exploring the causes of suggestibility in individuals with these disorders, and identifying ways to minimize suggestibility in individuals with neurobehavioral and neurocognitive disorders.
