Why Should You Attend:

Interviewing is not a peripheral task that is undertaken in the wake of conducting investigative interviews. Investigative interviewing 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 imperative that skilled interviewers are able to draw out the truth from people. Without a doubt the best investigators are the ones with the best situational interview questions.

If you are conducting investigative interviews, you might have received training in how to detect deceptiveness by evaluating the interviewees’ body language and non-verbal behavior. However, most interviewers have not received training on dealing with uncooperative and hostile interviewees. Before you can begin evaluating indications of truthfulness or deceptiveness, you must overcome objections to being interviewed and change the attitude of interviewees who are not cooperative.

If you have not received training in behavioral based interview questions or behavioral interviewing training, you will benefit from its detailed focus. If you have received similar training, you will benefit from this webinar’s unique approach. You will learn the motivation behind interviewees’ attitudes of resentfulness, reticence, animosity, wariness, superiority, and hostility. Since the main interview objective is reaching the truth, you will learn what motivates suspects, victims, witnesses, possible witnesses, and individuals that possess needed information to not be truthful or deceptive.
