When you conduct interviews, either in person or over the phone, so many things can go unnoticed. In this Pre-Conference session, you will learn how people are comfortable telling certain lies, as well as how an interviewee’s choice of words can provide important clues as to whether the interviewee is being truthful or holding information back.
Also, fraud examiners have been taught to rely on nonverbal behaviors to help detect deception, but what happens if your interpretation of these is flawed? Test your ability to detect deception while discussing the latest scientific research. You will learn how to apply various social-psychological behaviors to promote honesty. You will also watch videos and read statements from real confessions that have sparked debate about both their validity and accuracy.
