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.
