Deception detection training for professionals: Improving mental health professionals' ability to detect high-stakes lies.

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



Abstract:

The ability to detect deception is critical in many professional and personal contexts, yet research has repeatedly demonstrated that most individuals are only able to identify deceivers at chance levels (e.g., Vrij, 2008). In the present study, we evaluated the effectiveness of one-day training (Shaw, Porter & ten Brinke, in press) attended by 42 legal and mental health professionals. Performance on a deception detection task (discriminating between high-stakes truthful and fabricated videotaped stories) was measured pre- and post-training. Participants’ overall accuracy increased significantly from 46.4% to 80.9%. Strategies are discussed that may help improve professionals’ abilities to detect deception.
