Course Description

Of the three dynamics of the interviewing process-questioning, detecting, deception and persuasion – the last element –persuasion – most often proves to be the most challenging requiring the highest level of knowledge, skill and ability.

The interviewer as a persuader is faced with the additional challenges of ensuring that the cooperation is voluntary and that nothing has been done within the interview that would cause someone to make an admission to something that was not true.
The session involves participant analysis of actual interviews as well as debriefings from those who sat in the interviewee’s chair as to why they made the admission, why they did not make the admission and the role of the interviewer in their decision

Given a set of case and interviewee related information, the participant will:

1. Identify the three (3) most salient elements most conductive to compliance gaining within the conduct of the interview;

2. Develop and present an appropriate interview compliance – gaining strategy;

Given a video recording of compliance – gaining interview:
3. Conduct a critique of the interview identifying the positive and negative dynamics of the interview;

4. Provide an alternative compliance - gaining approach to that same set of circumstances and interviewee.
