Interview and interrogation techniques come in a wide range of philosophies and methodologies. The problem is that the vast majority are not based on any behavioral science research. Many are the result of nothing more than trial and error and more often than not just pure improvisation. The overall outcome of using such interview and interrogation techniques provides only marginal results at best.

When studied in depth and using active and adjudicated cases, research shows that interviewers can get consistent positive results.  Those interviewers have mastered three skills sets.  This course focuses on one of those particular skills – accurately recognizing and adjusting to their subject’s cognitive and emotional changes.

This course is applicable to you if you are in any for the following fields:

  • Law Enforcement
  • Corrections
  • Fire Service
  • Military
  • Intelligence
  • Loss Prevention
  • Risk Management

  • Recognize and understand the distinction between cognitive and emotional behaviors.
