Psychological well-being, humanity and dominance in police interviews: cuses and efects

Abstract [en]

The purpose of Therapeutic Jurisprudence is to execute legal procedures such that they promote the social and psychological well-being of the individual involved in a juridical action.

The aim of study one is to investigate whether personality characteristics (the Big Five) may explain crime victims’ psychological well-being related to their experiences of being interviewed by the police and questions from the prosecutor.

Eighty-three crime victims completed a questionnaire, previously used by Holmberg and Christianson (2002) and Holmberg (2004), about their experiences from their police interviews and the questions from the prosecutor. To identify personality characteristics, the participants completed the Big Five Inventory, and for measuring the crime victims’ psychological well-being, the Sense of Coherence form has been used. Crime victims’ experiences from police interviews and their psychological well-being will be discussed in the perspective of personality characteristics.

Previous studies by Holmberg and Christianson (2002) and Holmberg (2004) have shown associations between the interviewing styles (humanity and dominance) and interview outcomes. A study two with the aim of experimentally investigate the causality between interviewing styles, psychological well-being and interview outcomes will be presented and discussed.

The aim of these two studies is to shed lights on causes and effects on therapeutic jurisprudential investigative interviews.
