Interviewing and interrogation are more art than science, and proficiency requires experience and practice. This interactive webinar will explore tactics to interpret behaviors, establish trust, and obtain reliable information and evidence more effectively.

Understanding how to increase personal influence with nonverbal communication is vital to gaining trust, and trust is the foundation of every successful interview.  You will learn how nonverbal communication can help you take your interviewing skills to the next level. Using real-life examples from her law enforcement experience, Pamela Barnum will show you how moving away from confrontational or accusatory interviewing styles will elicit more complete statements.

  • Interpret body language quickly and effectively
  • Enhance your nonverbal communication skills
