Misjudging high-stakes deception can have severe consequences; however, when people are deceptive, they expose their true thoughts and feelings through uncontrolled and unconscious behavior. In these scientifically validated methods, you will learn to uncover implicit intentions in communication, powerful, non-oppressive questioning techniques and casual conversation approaches to identify truth-tellers and anyone being deceptive.
Furthermore, we will explore how relying on leading-edge technologies (such as micro facial coding) combined with Psychographics can help you better understand jurors’ feelings and save you valuable time in case preparation.
This advanced course takes a closer look at the subtleties of communication and how it relates to truthfulness and credibility. We will cover the skills and techniques needed to read and pick up nonverbal cues from others, how to develop strategic questioning to identify hidden bias that can affect your case and how psychographics combined with behavioral analysis and investigative interviewing will give you an unfair advantage in the court room. This combined with todays leading technology can identify outliers in significant data and can guide you to a stronger delivery of case information.
