Participants will learn how to:
o Improve skills in reading emotions and other nonverbal behaviors
o Improve their ability to spot clues to potential deception via nonverbal behaviors. Participants learn which nonverbal behaviors have been scientifically proven to be associated with truthfulness and deception and which have not (yet remain as stereotypic myths about clues to deceit)
o Understand the scientific principles of statement analysis and have a better understanding of human memory and language
o Know the scientifically validated markers of credibility
o See how statement analysis can be leveraged in interactions to further ascertain whether accounts for events are credible through observation of video and transcript analysis
o Practice and hone their own skills at conducting statement analysis on new examples
o Conduct investigative interviews by combining two heretofore independent investigative interviewing techniques – statement analysis and nonverbal behavioral analysis.
o Utilize the combined techniques, to gain insight into an individual’s thoughts, motivations, and ideas, and to evaluate truthfulness and detect deception.
o Improve the quality and substance of their interviews, regardless of the context, including a protocol (or guideline) for conducting interviews based on the combined techniques.
