He has researched and written extensively about false and coerced confessions.

It let me avoid my problem and at the same time pretend I was doing something to correct it, but in all honesty it was just a waste of time. I didn’t want to recognize its futility at first, but eventually I couldn’t ignore it and had to come to terms with the fact that resource room was aspirin for a broken arm: It made things seem a bit better, but it did nothing to fix the problem. When I came to terms with this I convinced my mother to take me out of resource room and that I could take responsibility for my own problem, and that is exactly what I did, and have done ever since.

Kassin, a leading researcher in the false confessions area, refers to this as the innocence-confession paradox wherein the Miranda warning does not protect those most in need of protection the innocent.
