The importance of Detecting Truth, Deception, and Lies while conducting an Investigative Interview

Online Event


Key Take Away:

Learn the craft of interviewing using skill, artistry and best practices to understand the psychology of what motivates an interviewee to tell the truth.


Most people believe they can tell when someone is lying, especially if it is someone they know, such as their child, spouse, or a friend. And they probably can. However, they might not have the ability to detect whether someone is telling the truth, is being deceptive, or is lying when conducting an investigative interview training and sitting across from the person for the first time. And if they can, they might not be able to articulate how they reached their conclusion. It is critical that skilled investigator training makes you conduct legally acceptable interviews, evaluate the responses, and be able to articulate their conclusions for the official record.


Why Should You Attend:

Interviewing is not a peripheral task when conducting an investigation. Interview skills is a critical component of an investigation. Investigative Information is gleaned from a variety of sources, i.e. computer data, documents, trace evidence, and of course people. It is people who commit crimes and possess information to assist in the investigative outcome. It is people who have motivations to lie or tell the truth. It is imperative that skilled interviewers are able to follow established best practice interview steps combined with the ability to detect truth, deception, and lies.
