More about the research group
We work together with the police, judges, defense lawyers, paediatricians and psychological specialists.
Most of our projects are within forensic psychology and cognitive developmental psychology, with a focus on memory, various factors related to children's legal security, and children's competence as witnesses in cases where children are offended in events of violence and abuse.
We work specifically with children of preschool age (3-6) and school age (7-18), parents, and families.
We use methods like national field studies, experimental laboratory studies, replications, and clinical studies.
