Nearly a quarter of all wrongful convictions involve individuals who falsely confessed to crimes they didn’t commit.Nirider introduces her audience to this fascinating psychological phenomenon and uses stories of real-life murder interrogations to explain how commonly used interrogation tactics can cause not only the guilty, but also the innocent, to confess. She blows up common myths about the justice system and explains why children are particularly likely to falsely confess to crimes they didn’t commit. Along the way, she will share her inspirational personal story of professional dream-chasing.
