Voyage to Discovery: Using Interview and Witness Behavioral Analysis

Attorneys, investigators, experts, and members of law enforcement meet with people to obtain information to assist in determinations of proximate cause, criminal responsibility, perceptions, recollections and damages. Self-interest and defensiveness provide challenges to information gathering. If the person being interviewed is under oath or on the stand and if, in particular they have dissimilar goals; the obtaining of direct and complete answers may be difficult. The challenge is how to obtain the testimony needed when faced with adversarial or guarded witnesses. What is the best way to ask questions so that they will be answered? How might the behavioral analysis of a witness be utilized to optimize a particular line of questioning?

The best practices often benefit from multidisciplinary perspectives. The approaches offered in this OnDemand Webinar are useful to anyone wanting to enhance the effectiveness of their interview and behavioral analyses techniques. These procedures can be applied to interrogations, depositions, assessments, trail testimony and other forms of information gathering. This OnDemand Webinar also offers the benefit of recent research in nonverbal behavioral cues used in investigative interviewing. You will find your interviewing skills enhanced and will also find that you are able to conduct witness behavioral analyses more efficiently and effectively.
