Summary This thesis examined the nature and strength of the relationship between children's performance on suggestibility scales and their recall of independent events. It demonstrated that whilst standardised scales of suggestibility may be useful in predicting children's reporting of false information, there are clear boundaries to their usefulness. The clinical portfolio examines and discusses the impact that exposure to family violence has on children's functioning across development.
