Why Should You Attend:

An interview objective should be to attain the truth from an interviewee. This training module will explore the methods to determine if an interviewee is truthful or deceptive as well as detail the methods an interviewer can employ to legally and ethically draw out the truth from a deceptive interviewee.

By attending this webinar, participants will learn the different methods employed by an interviewer including word choices, proxemics, body language, and appropriate follow-up direct questions to draw out the truth from an interviewee. They will learn how to break down barriers and overcome the objections of reluctant, uncooperative, or hostile interviewees.

Further, this webinar will guide attendees in steering the interviewee towards honest communication. While even the best interviewers may not be able to achieve the objective of receiving the truth from some interviewees, this course will help attendees learn a secondary interview objective of boxing-in the interviewee with his or her responses by asking appropriate direct questions.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • How to detect deceptive and truthful responses.
  • Interviewer word choices to draw out the truth.
  • Interviewer body language to assist in truth telling.
  • Appropriate follow-up direct questions that are designed to elicit either a truthful response or an easily detected direct lie.
  • How to use effective transition statements informing the interviewee that his or her responses are not believable and that truthful responses are the best course to take.
  • How to deal with reluctant, uncooperative, and hostile interviewees.
  • When attaining the truth fails, how to box-in the non-truthful interviewee with his or her responses that can be used to the interviewer’s advantage.

Topic Background:

When conducting interviews, interviewers should ask appropriate open-ended questions that call for a narrative response. When the interviewee is responding, the interviewer should be listening to verbal and paralinguistic, as well as observing non-verbal indicators of truth or deception. An interviewer will then need to ask clarifying open ended questions to explore not fully explained parts of the responses, inconsistencies in the narrative response, as well as inconsistencies with known facts. The interviewer should be listening and looking for further indications of truth or deception in the responses to clarifying questions. Guilty persons are not the only interviewees who lie. For a variety of reasons that will be explored, many people will lie when interviewed. An interviewer needs to know how to handle the lies and deception, and draw out the truth in a legally and ethically accepted method.
