Relationship between false confessions and perceptions of parental rearing practices

NOVEMBER 08, 2006

Professor Gisli Gudjonsson, Department of Psychology, Institute of Psychiatry and colleagues from University Hospital, Reykjavik, Iceland and University of Iceland have had a paper looking at the relationship between false confessions and perceptions of parental rearing practices published in the Scandivanian Journal of Psychology.

804 college students in Iceland participated in the study who completed questionnaires relating to perceived parental rearing practices (EMBU), proneness to antisocial behaviour (The Gough Socialisation Scale), personality (EPQ), self-esteem (Rosenberg) and compliance (GCS).  False confessions were significantly associated with proneness to antisocial behaviour and EMBU Rejection and warmth scales for both fathers and mothers.  The complete paper is published in the Journal of Scandinavian Psychology 2006, 361-368.
