Contingent on investment being to be had, a Festschrift can be held in honor of Dr. John Yuille’s profession as a Forensic Psychologist. He has develop into essentially the most obvious and revered Canadian psychologists around the globe. In gentle of his upcoming retirement in December 2006, the Festschrift will realize Dr. Yuille’s achievements within the parts of eyewitness reminiscence examine (i.e., pioneering a brand new learn paradigm that gives you larger validity), investigative interviewing (i.e., the improvement and use of the Step clever Interview Protocol), and credibility evaluation (i.e., introducing assertion Validity research to North America). New instructions for destiny paintings can be explored on the workshop. the focal point of this Festschrift should be three-fold:
1. foreign. Dr. Yuille’s paintings has inspired legislation enforcement practices and prompted study in and outdoors of Canada. The foreign and multicultural facets of the paintings that Dr. Yuille has encouraged might be mirrored and promoted by means of this workshop.
2. Interdisciplinary. Dr. Yuille is across the world referred to as a professional, advisor and coach to legislation enforcement. As such, Dr. Yuille’s paintings has additionally motivated different disciplines, e.g., the legislations, social paintings, oral background. The contributors of this Festschrift will achieve perception into different professionals’ views and foster strength collaborations on destiny projects.
3. Emphasis on utilized study. an indicator of Dr. Yuille’s study has been the appliance of box and archival equipment, which made his paintings without delay acceptable to forensically proper contexts. the aptitude destiny instructions of utilized forensic study should be mentioned at this Festschrift.
The value of the topic at this time:
- a scarcity of integrative types within the literatures of eyewitness reminiscence and the evaluation of truthfulness and deception.

However, in the final analysis, it is an empirical question: we must study the behavior of real witnesses to actual crimes. Then and only then will we have a foundation for a psychology of eyewitnesses. In the following paragraphs, I explore several examples of phenomena studied in the lab that I believe are not and cannot be analogues of phenomena in the real world. Effect of Stress Real-life events in the forensic context often have a strong emotional component. Victims, witnesses, and, at times, offenders may feel fear or be traumatized by an event.

Seniuk Judges or juries make decisions about the credibility of witnesses, decisions that might send one person to prison for years, strip another of her fortune or deny a parent full access to his children. An on-going judicial research project has been studying how such questions of contested fact are determined in a trial (Seniuk, 1994).
Could there be? Should there be? By using this new lens of fuzzy logic as a framework for analysis, we can explore that question. Legal evidence scholarship has already begun looking at related questions. In evidence scholarship, there has been recognition of insights similar to those of fuzzy logic, although legal scholarship has certainly not embraced fuzzy logic. However, there is recognition in evidence scholarship that fact finding and the logic of proof is not as crisp and precise as formalized legal reasoning makes it appear (Allen & Seniuk, 1997).
