Teaching Professionals to Detect Deception: The Efficacy of a Brief Training Workshop

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



Abstract:

The purpose of the present study was to investigate whether forensic professionals trained in a verbal content analysis method of credibility assessment could improve in their abilities to detect deception. Ninety-nine forensic professionals who participated in a brief (2.5hr) training session rated three transcripts prior to training and three transcripts following training. Results indicated that these professionals improved from 60% accuracy before training to 70% accuracy after training. Further, their responses indicated that they focused on the specific cues taught during the training when rating the post-training transcripts. Implications for future trainings and investigative interviewing will be discussed.
