Biography: 

Stacia N. Stolzenberg is an assistant professor in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Arizona State University. She is also a core faculty for ASU's program on law and behavioral sciences. Trained as an applied developmental psychologist who completed a three-year postdoc at the University of Southern California’s Gould School of Law, Stolzenberg takes an interdisciplinary approach to studying children’s reports of maltreatment, then applying her work to criminal justice systems. Her work focuses on the direct application of developmental science to increasing accurate and complete disclosures from children, without increasing false reporting. To do so, she studies the reporting, investigating and prosecuting of child maltreatment. Furthermore, Stolzenberg studies children’s competencies and vulnerabilities regarding their cognitive abilities, as they apply to child interviewing.

  • M.A. Applied Developmental Psychology, Claremont Graduate University 2010
  • B.A. Psychology and Art (Magna Cum Laude), Chapman University 2008
Research Interests: 

What are methods that can elicit true disclosures of abuse without increasing false reports? What are realistic boundaries for what children can recall accurately? How do children understand and respond to questioning by adults? What are feasible methods that can be implemented by those in the field to better handled children’s reports of maltreatment? 

These are the questions that Dr. Stolzenberg's research aims to answer. In doing so, she utilizes mixed-methods. She assesses what happens in real cases and then use these findings to assess children’s competencies and vulnerabilities in the laboratory. Dr. Stolzenberg then return to what happens in the field to inform current practices during investigative processes.
