Experts in Body Language

expert

I have seen a lot of "body language experts" market themselves very effectively within the media. They are highly paid consultants who train companies and organizations, conduct keynote speeches and dazzle people at sales conferences, and even train agents within the federal alphabet soup (FBI, CIA, DOD, DHS, etc...). But as it turns out, many of them may be more experts on marketing than on body language. For me, a true expert should be someone who has done what they are teaching, not simply studied or read about it and reorganized the material into their own courses. I know that most dictionaries define an expert as "a person who has a comprehensive and authoritative knowledge of or skill in a particular area." My belief is that within the definition of expert the "or" should be change to "and", and that their skill should be tested in the real world, with real people and with real lives and consequences on the line. When hiring someone as a consultant or trainer for your company or agency, or if you bring them in for a keynote presentation, make sure they have the background of doing what they plan on teaching or assisting you with if you want real results.

The "ACID" Test for Deception

acid

Investigators seem to be looking for the silver bullet for detecting deception; an instrument, contraption or tool that can distinguish between deception and truthfulness in people. Investigators need to stop looking for a "tool" and focus on "training." A properly trained interviewer is the best defense in preventing all the negative impact that comes when someone effectively lies during an investigation, whether that is in the context of a police interrogation, corporate investigation or military intelligence operation. Recent academic and field studies have demonstrated that training in ACID, which is an acronym for Assessment Criteria Indicative of Deception, significantly increased a person's ability to assess the credibility during interviews. I am excited to have Kevin Colwell teaching the ACID technique on The Lie Boat training cruise, which is scheduled for April 2016!

Psychopaths; Managed but not Cured

psychopath 1

Dr. Hare and other experts, including forensic psychologists and FBI profilers, consider psychopathy to be the most important forensic concept of the early twenty-first century because of its relevance to law enforcement, corrections, the courts and related fields. Dr. Hare and his associates developed the Psychopathy Check List Revised (PCL-R) and its derivatives which provide a clinical assessment of the degree of psychopathy that an individual possesses. This article in Psychology Today discusses more about that and how it is believed that criminal psychopaths can be managed but not cured.

So, once identified, how can you effectively deal with a psychopath? How can you conduct effective interviews or interrogations with people who are psychopathic or who have psychopathic tendencies?

Understanding Psychopathy and the Psychopathic Mind and how to Effectively Interview the Psychopathic Personality are some of the training courses on The Lie Boat training cruise.
