Title Interrogative suggestibility: Interactions between interviewees' self-esteem and interviewer style
Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Personality and Individual Differences
Month/year of publication: October 2003
Pagination: 1285-1292
Volume: 35 (6)
ISSN: 0191-8869
DOI: 10.1016/S0191-8869(02)00349-5 ?
Co-authors: Bain, S, Jackson, M
Other relevant details: First author. Primary drafter of manuscript. Designer of its core rationale which was to test for variations in susceptibility to pressures in questioning resulting from variations in interviewees' levels of self-esteem. A key result was that high self-esteem interviewees showed more resistance to a pressuring question style than they did to a more relaxed style: this effect was reversed in lower self-esteem interviewees.

Title Interrogative pressure and responses to minimally leading questions
Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Personality and Individual Differences
Month/year of publication: January 2006
Pagination: 87-98
Volume: 40 (1)
ISSN: 0191-8869
DOI: 10.1016/j.paid.2005.06.017 ?
Co-authors: Boon, J, Marley, C
Other relevant details: First author. Primary drafter of manuscript. Designer of its core rationale which was to adapt the procedure of the Gudjonsson Suggestibility Scales (GSS) to examine the effects of the negative feedback component of the GSS in isolation by minimising the leading effects of the standard GSS questions. It was found that negative feedback, an influence still widely used in police questioning, may be twice as influential in distorting recall of a spoken narrative as the influence of leading questions, an influence largely avoided in police questioning.

Title Interrogative pressure in simulated forensic interviews: The effects of negative feedback
Output type: Journal article
Journal title: British Journal of Psychology
Month/year of publication: August 2007
Pagination: 455-465
Volume: 98 (3)
ISSN: 0007-1269
DOI: 10.1348/000712606X147510 ?
Co-authors: McGroarty, A
Other relevant details: This paper builds on the work of Baxter et al. (2006) and examines and isolates the effects of feedback on recall of a complex stimulus. The results confirm our earlier prediction, providing new evidence that the complexity of the material to be recalled does not appear either to diminish or heighten the distorting effects of feedback. McGroarty was a PhD student working in Baxter's team. Baxter oversaw design, interpretation, and writing up.

Title Interacting influences on interrogative suggestibility
Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Legal and Criminological Psychology
Month/year of publication: September 2004
Pagination: 239-252
Volume: 9 (2)
ISSN: 1355-3259
DOI: 10.1348/1355325041719419 ?
Co-authors: Bain, S, Fellowes, V
Other relevant details: First author. Key role in drafting the manuscript and interpreting the results. This paper was an extension of the rationale used in Baxter et al (2003) which, in an addition to that previous study's procedure, tested for the effects of instructional manipulation on interviewees' susceptibility to interrogative pressure.
