Evaluating Truthfulness in Psychopathic and Nonpsychopathic Offenders of Violent Crime: Verbal Clues to Credibility

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Research has demonstrated that, without proper training, individuals are generally no better than chance when differentiating truths from lies. However, a growing body of research indicates accuracy in evaluating truthfulness can significantly improve with training that combines knowledge and skills. We will provide a brief introduction to The Forensic Alliance’s evidence-based approach to evaluating truthfulness, which focuses on anchoring knowledge and skills in an understanding of the psychology of truthfulness. Attention will be given to verbal clues to evaluating truthfulness in psychopathic and nonpsychopathic offenders of violent crime. Implications for credibility assessment in forensic contexts will be discussed.
