Here I think false memory is a issue in criminal psychology because if your working with criminals false memories can lead to difficulties analysing the criminals behaviour and pattern. Regression is basically subduing someone by force so if you force a criminal into a act by force I think that could lead to negative consequences like for example if I try to force a criminal into telling me about a past they do not want to speak about that could lead the criminal to behave differently or that could gain less of the criminals trust and also may lead to the criminal being untruthful about his/her statements to me about the criminals past. So regression may lead to negative consequences and false memory is basically when the person’s has a belief system that isn’t the truth or is entirely made up which could mean the criminal is trying to block a memory because of either trauma or mental illness.

It’s a issue because in order to help the criminal you would need to overcome whatever issue you feel the criminal is suffering from. False memory you would need to analyse whether the criminal has had any trauma in the past or any mental illness that he/she could be suffering from. So if it’s mental illness you would need to overcome it by seeking treatment plans to help the victims mental illness it could be putting the criminal into a mental hospital or even getting him on medication or if suffering from trauma from anything it may have experienced in the past get the criminal a therapist. But this where repression comes in because if the criminal doesn’t want any help you may need to force him to get the help which would lead to mistrust. So you would first have to gain and work with the criminal for a long time in order to gain his/her trust in order to establish a trust system. They afterwards you could try to convince the criminal into seeking that help in order for him/her to get better
