This volume includes a set of chapters based on presentations given during a conference that presented findings about self-report. As the chapters in this volume document, psychological and social processes influence storage and recall of self-report information. They show that there are conditions under which self-reports should be readily accepted by the clinicians or researcher, and that there are other conditions where healthy scepticism is required. Methods for improving the accuracy of self-reports are demonstrated, ranging from fine-tuning interviews and questionnaires to employing emerging technologies to collect data in ways that minimize bias and encourage accurate reporting.
