Description

Effective Interviewing and Interrogation Techniques, Third Edition is a practical manual which provides the forensic practitioner/investigator critical insight into human behavior, enabling one to become a better interviewer, interrogator and, most importantly, an expert detector of truthful and deceptive behavior. The Forensic Assessment Interview Technique (FAINT) and the Integrated Interrogation Technique (IIT) were developed at the Academy for Scientific Investigative Training and are used by forensic practitioners and investigators to detect truthful or deceptive behavior. FAINT is applicable to all forensic type interviews and incorporates the assessment of nonverbal behavior, projective analysis of unwitting verbal cues, statement analysis and the Morgan Interview Thematic Technique (MITT). This volume teaches how to combine, apply and quantify these techniques to reach a numerical conclusion to the truthfulness of the interviewee. 

The third edition expands chapters on torture, assessing the interview, statement analysis, MITT, and interrogation. It contains new chapters on passenger screening, and report writing, along with new case studies. Also covered are ways to maximize the collection of information from a prospective employee, and legal considerations.

Gordon and Fleisher have created a one-stop guide to mastering the art of credibility assessment during an interview, with successfully tested techniques for obtaining a confession from guilty suspects.  Forensic practitioners, law enforcement, the intelligence community, the private security sector, attorneys, and forensic and criminal justice students will all find this volume a valuable resource.

Quotes and reviews

Praise for the second edition: "The authors have described a very generalizable and useful interviewing technique that is easy to learn, simple to use, and can significantly improve the ability to discern truth from deception in a manner that is both interesting and engaging."--J Police Crim Psych (2008) 23:45-47

"The authors show how applying the techniques identified in the book can achieve desired investigative results.  The new edition is also timely in that the authors address purported methods or torture, such as waterboarding, in our post-9-11 society.  The text remains a valuable reference for those who practice the art and science of investigations, and for readers or prior editions, this updated version’s new content merits a second looks."--Security Management
