Effective Interviewing and Interrogation Techniques, Second Edition, is completely revised and updated building on the previous edition's groundbreaking search for truth in criminal and non-criminal investigations. The Second Edition contains all the information an investigator needs to know about obtaining answers from a witness, a victim, or a suspect and how to interpret these answers with the utmost accuracy. Highly illustrated, the chapters include several model worksheets and documents as well as complete instructions for using the authors' Integrated Interrogation Technique, a 10-point, highly successful approach to obtaining confessions that can stand up in court.
In addition, the Second Edition contains five new chapters which include coverage of false confessions, interviewing the mentally challenged, and the ethics of interrogation in a post 9/11 world. New material presents an extensive look at the Forensic Assessment Interview (FAINT), providing sample interviews and explaining how to rate levels of truth and deception in these interviews. The book concludes with an insightful look at the future of truth verification.
