MACHADO, Patrícia Vasconcelos; SILVANO, Maiala Bittencourt  e  HUTZ, Claudio Simon. Exploratory study on truthfulness criteria in reports of life events: considerations for the criminal psychological investigation of adults. Aletheia [online]. 2015, n.47-48, pp. 35-50. ISSN 1413-0394.

The aim of the research was to test the criteria of the Criteria-Based Content Analysis - CBCA technique in common reports of adults to ascertain which are the most frequent in true reports. Forty six free reports and open questions interviews with adults with minimum age of 18 years and at least high school education were made. Three tasks were proposed: to tell two stories (one true and one false) and to answer the Factorial Scale of Neuroticism - EFN. The analysis of the interviews showed that criteria "5: description of interactions" and "8: non-usual details" were significantly more frequent in true reports. The significant items for checking the credibility of the testimony can be further explored in new research to explore the analysis of the versions presented to the crime scene investigators during reconstruction, after being tested in specific new research on expert technical veracity.
