Effective Interviewing and Interrogation Techniques believably answers the question, How do you know when someone is lying? It also provides a guide for interviewing probable suspects and interrogating likely perpetrators on techniques and tradecraft. This book covers topics about searching for truth and revealing lies. It presents forensic assessments based on psychophysiology, and assessments on the basis of non-verbal behavior. The book also covers interview and interrogation preparation, as well as question formulation. It discusses the Morgan Interview Theme Technique or MITT, and the Forensic Assessment Interview or FAINT. The book addresses techniques for interviewing children and the mentally challenged, and offers information about pre-employment interviews. It also explains how to understand aggressive behavior and how to deal with angry people. The book concludes by presenting future methods for searching for the truth. Law enforcement and security professionals, as well as prosecutors, criminal defense lawyers, and civil litigators will find this book invaluable.

I highly recommend this book without reservations." --James Allan Matte, President of Matte Polygraph Service, Inc., member of adjunct Faculty of the Backster School of Lie Detection, American Polygraph Association, Honorary Member of the Pennsylvania Polygraph Examiners Association, Society for Psychophysiological Research, Association for Psychological Science, American Society for Testing and Materials and Honorary President of the British Polygraph Association.
