Course Description
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.

Key concepts covered in this course include: 
     • Cognitive techniques for interviewing
     • How people think and their mindset
     • How to more effectively interview a victim, witness, and suspect
     • Observe brain-based deception and other behaviors
     • Real-life examples and illustrations
