False Confessions

Successful interviews and interrogations of suspects often involve understanding the psychology of the offender and establishing a rapport with them, including those who have committed egregious acts. However, investigators and interviewers must take due care while embarking upon a dialogue with a suspect as the issue of false confessions have been known to result. Chapter 3 of Bartol & Bartol (2019) discusses the problems associated with false confessions and takes a rather sobering exploration into the interviewing process. In your post, examine the dominant strategies utilized during the interviewing process. In addition, explain the process through which a suspect can be compelled to confess to a crime for which they are not responsible.

Guided Response: Your initial post should be at least 300 words in length.
