LENGTH: 5 days
Walk through a linguistic crime scene search to uncover critical insight and clues to areas of stress and deception that the suspect never intended to reveal.
The Statement Analysis course is a lively, interactive workshop using actual criminal cases as well as videos from well-known political and sports figures, to reveal the meaning of words.
Case studies used throughout the course range from theft and homicide to espionage and terrorism. Participants will analyze both what is said and what is not said, to gain critical insight and identify areas of stress that may indicate deception.
Statement Analysis is a structured method of analyzing an individual's verbatim spoken or written words. The insight gained from the analysis provides investigators with specific interview strategies to use in follow-up interviews of suspects, victims, and witnesses.This additional insight gives interviewers increased confidence to gain the truth during interviews.
Statement Analysis techniques can also be used by interviewers during applicant interviews and in daily interpersonal communication. Statements are easily contaminated by the questioner's nonverbal and verbal cues. The least contaminated statements in criminal cases are the initial calls to 911 centers.Although sometimes overlooked, 911 calls contain a wealth of information for investigators.
Course participants will analyze actual 911 calls to identify indicators of innocence and guilt, developed from research analyzing hundreds of 911 calls.
The three-day Statement Analysis course can be expanded into a more advanced five-day course with the inclusion of additional practical exercises.
