Course Objectives
Course Overview:
Level I
Practical Kinesic Interview &
Interrogation®

 
Course Overview:
 
Your agency has likely seen time and time again, highly competent investigators struggle to obtain consistently meaningful information from victim, witness and subject interviews. The issue isn’t lack intelligence or bad intent - it’s the lack of a usable advanced skill set that is causing them to miss critical information.

 
Current interviewing efforts may be ineffective for one or more reasons:
 
1. No formal interview skills training, so productive interviews rarely if ever are conducted.
2. Poor interview training which result in victim, witness, and subject interviews that are incomplete, missing important details or cause subject contamination.
3. Training is based on unscientific concepts and perpetuated myths. Deception is misdiagnosed, victims and witnesses are alienated, and subjects are wrongly accused or missed as persons of interest.
4. Techniques being used result in increased liability for the interviewer and the agency.
 
The Mastering Narrative-Based Interviews course is part of the Practical Kinesic Interview and Interrogation series. The content is based on empirical research into behavioral analysis and effective interviewing of victims, witnesses and subjects. Expertly presented, the proven concepts are immediately usable by your new investigators and upgrade the skills of those with the most experience.
