This presentation is a primer on source monitoring in forensic settings. Source monitoring is a typical automatic task individuals use to evaluate memories, thoughts, and beliefs, based on their origination and reliability. This presentation has been designed for professionals who work with memory within forensic settings. The presentation will break down source monitoring and the Source Monitoring Framework developed by Johnson, Hastroudi, and Lindsay in 1993. It will include updated research relating to source monitoring. These variables impact the accuracy of source monitoring and various components of source monitoring, such as internal, external, and reality monitoring. Lastly, this presentation will encompass ways in which source monitoring errors occur and how professionals can protect against these errors.
