Who Do I Believe?

This course has been designed for anyone who has ever investigated a set of allegations and struggled to make a finding at the end. Perhaps it is one person’s word against another, or maybe you just don’t have the confidence to feel you can decide who is lying and who is telling the truth. In this fascinating and engaging course, you will learn about the science of lie detection, find out which approaches work and which don’t, and learn valuable tools to assist you in making decisions.

Specific content covered will include the following:

  • The psychology of lying
  • Various tools used for lie detection, their strengths and weaknesses and applicability to internal workplace investigation, including facial micro-expressions, gestures and body language, and voice and verbal statement analysis
  • Structuring the interview to enhance lie detection, including discussion of cognitive interviewing
  • Translating credibility concerns and determinations into specific language in written reports

Participants will be provided with comprehensive materials explaining these concepts and tools to better support them in their investigation practice. Following the Rubin Thomlinson methodology of role play and problem solving, internal investigators will have the opportunity to enhance their skills and allow them to make difficult credibility decisions in their investigations with confidence.
