NICB-IASIU Online Course: The Art of Interviewing, Illusions and Successful Court Room Testimony


Time: 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

The entire process of interviewing and interrogation is often described as the process of creating illusions to obtain information. Perception and impression in the courtroom are often overlooked in the final stage of your investigative work product. This course talks about human behavior and cognitive psychology and applies them to interviews, interrogations, and courtroom testimony. Information is the commodity for professional investigators. This course will provide insight in the use of traditional and non-conventional DBR, active listening, and the power of the question mark. It will also focus on perceptual illusions to aid information collection and courtroom success.
