3.0 CLE credit applied for this program.

Forensic psychologist Dr. Paul Simpson discusses what attorneys need to know about memory and how it can affect your case. This program touches on general principles of memory and explores topics like suggestibility, recovered memories, eyewitness accounts and memory development. This is a great opportunity for attorneys who work with witnesses, clients, victims and others to learn more about how memory works.

Dr. Paul Simpson is a forensic psychologist practicing in Tucson. He is the author of Second Thoughts, a book instrumental in helping expose the false claims and dangers of “recovered memory therapy.”  A leading national educator on False Memory Syndrome Dr. Simpson trained thousands of counseling professionals on standards of practice. He also served as an expert consultant to the Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiners.

Dr. Simpson has been a guest on The Joan Rivers Show, the Leeza Gibbons Show, Focus on the Family, Frontline and Fox News. He has been a professional consultant to a number of national media, including 20/20, 60 minutes, NBC News, Nightline, The Oprah Winfrey Show, the Chicago Tribune, Dateline, The Today Show, Focus on the Family and Vanity Fair magazine.

This 3-hour talk explores how memory works (and fails). Topics include:

  • the Seven Sins of Memory
  • Memory development in children
  • Suggestibility
  • Eyewitness accounts
  • Claims of recovered memories
  • Weapons focus
Dr. Simpson’s previous CLE programs were well received, including:

  • The Newly Adopted Daubert Standard: Implications for Psychological Evaluations in Court
  • Anatomy of a Psychosexual Evaluation: What Every Attorney Should
