Course Objectives
Course Overview:
Date: February 1, 2023
Time: 1:00p.m. - 4:00p.m. (Eastern Time)

Invariably, every interviewer will encounter some subjects who will have a strong emotional reaction during their interview. Whether that reaction is exhibited as anger or depression, the presence of either one can create an emotional firestorm that left untreated can cause disastrous results in the interview room and ultimately the case in the courtroom.
The simple truth is that in the vast majority of cases, interviewers are aware of the emotional outbreak but have little or no training on how to properly deal with the problem. Old school interview and interrogation training leads interviewers to believe that the presence or absence of anger is a sign the subject is either truthful or deceptive. The perception about depression is that it is the emotional state which indicates a subject is ready to confess. Those two points of view could not be further from the reality about human emotional reactions and set the interviewer up for a case of self-sabotage.
Interviewers can stabilize a chaotic, highly charged emotional storm that can occur during an interview. Once they understand the difference between a reaction behavior versus a response behavior the plan of action becomes clear. The progress destroying emotional reactions can be redirected toward the far more productive response behaviors and ultimately clear a path to resolution of their subject’s role in the event.
The tactics to accomplishing the goal of stabilizing an emotional reaction are easy learn, easy to deploy and produce solid interview results.
