TheCognitive Interview Schedule by Geiselman et al (1985)
You should be able to describe each of the four instruction in the Cognitive Interview
- Change the perspective: Ask the interviewee to recall the situation from another witnesses point of view.
- Recreate the context: Instruct the interviewee to recall the environmental features and the way they felt during the witnessed event.
- Order it differently: Ask the interviewee to recall the event backwards rather than in a chronological order.
- Recall every detail: Instruct the interviewee to recall every detail from the witnessed event, no matter whether they consider it relevant to the accuracy of the event.
