Chapters explore young people’s capacities, competencies, and special vulnerabilities as victims, witnesses, and defendants. Key topics include the reliability of children’s abuse disclosures, eyewitness testimony, interviews, and confessions- the evolving role of the expert witness- the psychological impact of trauma and of legal involvement- factors that shape jurors’ perceptions of children- and what works in rehabilitating juvenile offenders.

Policies and practices that are not supported by science are identified, and approaches to improving them are discussed.
