Course description
This course introduces the art of cognitive interviewing using neuro-linguistic programming techniques. Students learn how to interview suspects, witnesses, and victims more effectively; and to observe brain-based deception behavior in both face-to-face and virtual communications. Topics include influence and persuasion with difficult witnesses and suspects, interpretation of body language for deceit and truthfulness, and best practices for testimony and reframing cross examination. The instructor breaks down foundational concepts pertaining to how the brain interprets and recalls information, providing an essential framework for more effective communication. There is a strong focus on communication in the courtroom, from testimony to building rapport to "reading" a jury.
