Cognitive interviewing begins with
understanding the person you are interviewing beyond the basic pedigree
information. This holds true for victims, witnesses, and suspects. Each person
needs a different strategy or technique. This class focuses on understanding how
people think and their mindset, especially in the advent of the reliance on
technology and a shortened attention span. In this two-day class, students learn
different cognitive and influential techniques in order to reach people at
a deeper level to effectively obtain more information and evidence. Students
learn how to be more effective interviewers of victims, witnesses, and suspects,
while teaching them how to observe brain-based deception and other behaviors.
Real life examples and illustrations will help students apply these techniques
in their investigations as well as in the courtroom.
