Dr Michelle Mattison jets to Japan! Chester lecturer presents at International Congress of Psychology in Yokohama

Posted on 11th August 2016

Dr Michelle Mattison presented her research at the prestigious 31st International Congress of Psychology (ICP) in Yokohama, Japan. The ICP is held once every four years in a different world city and is considered the flagship event in international psychology. The 6 day congress had over 8,000 delegates from approximately 90 countries.

As part of a broader symposium on investigative interviewing, Dr Mattison delivered a presentation entitled “The investigative interviewing of victims and witnesses with autism spectrum disorder”. This topic follows from Michelle’s research into memory processes in individuals with complex communication needs, techniques to support communication during interviews and increasing access to justice for vulnerable victims, witnesses, suspects and defendants.

Michelle introduces students to the field of investigative interviewing as part our undergraduate programme. To find out more about Michelle’s research and teaching, please visit her staff profile:
