What is the “mission” of every first responder, new detective or criminal investigator during any investigative interview? To collect or recover critical information from victims, witnesses and persons of interest and develop the leads necessary to move the investigation forward. The problem however, is that often the interview subject’s current mental and/or emotional state can drastically inhibit the investigator’s ability to collect vital details.

Part One focused on the investigators behavior and how it affects their ability to facilitate the recovery of information and avoid contamination. Just imagine however, the mental and emotional upheaval a victim or witness has experienced or is still experiencing. What are the consequences of failing to recognize a person of interest who is deliberately trying to mislead and sabotage the investigator’s efforts? What if there are updated and more efficient ways to recover critical information than “the way we have always done it.”
Part Two will focus on the behaviors of the subject being interviewed and their possible resistance to the interview AND the interviewer. These are behaviors that interfere with the interviewer’s ability to get the subject to willingly initiate productive response behaviors and provide critical information.
First responders, new detectives or criminal investigators can successfully complete their “mission” of gaining subject compliance and collecting reliable information. They can achieve remarkable results simply by using innovative methods for recognizing and correctly adjusting their tactics based on their subject’s mental and emotional changes during the critical investigative interview.

Participants will get to work on:
A brief review of the Intro course concepts and the Elements of a Successful Interview.
Learn the difference between a “reaction” versus a “response” from your subject.
Recognize the verbal and non-verbal cues of “reaction” and “response” behaviors.
Developing efficient tactics to neutralize the negative reaction behaviors.
Learn a simple formula for composing a persuasive dialogue that encourages subjects to voluntarily initiate a cooperative demeanor.
How to recognize the verbal and non-verbal cues of a cooperative subject.
How to avoid sabotaging your subject’s “response state."
