Bartlett's reconstructive theory is appropriate for crime witness and her testimony.  This theory is based on the concept that memory is not always reliable because it depends on the stress, anxiety and nervousness of the witness.  So for recalling the memory accurately, it is necessary to make the witness focus on the crime scene and not other impertinent information.  This way the memory recalls more accurately what happened at the crime scene.  This can be done by asking the witness crime scene questions in different ways so he can concentrate on the crime scene and his/her memory improves in the process.
