“This is an opportunity to acknowledge the extensive contributions of Michael Lamb and to honor his clear thinking and generous heart.  Dr. Lamb and colleagues profoundly shaped the field and practice of forensic interviewing with the introduction of the extensively researched NICHD protocol, which continues to teach us much about mining children’s recall memory for personal difficult experiences with sensitivity, skill, and curiosity.”
