1-day Virtual Program

Developing Investigative Interviewing Skills for School Administrators

Wednesday Sep 25th, 2024 • ZOOM


Principals, Assistant Principals, Deans and other school administrators oftentimes are called upon to conduct investigations of students, and in some cases staff, regarding involvement in inappropriate, and in some cases illegal, behaviors or activities. In this 6-hour virtual training program you will learn how to structure the investigative interview, how to evaluate the credibility of the subject’s behavior, and in those instances in which the investigative information identifies the offender, how to create an environment conducive to the subject telling the truth about what they did.

This training program will consist of three primary topics:

  • Behavior Symptom Analysis
  • The Behavior Analysis Interview
  • Positive Persuasion

Behavior Symptom Analysis

During this segment of the program we discuss the verbal and nonverbal behavior symptoms that are displayed by a person who is telling the truth during a non-accusatory, non-confrontational interview, as well as those displayed by a person who is fabricating or withholding relevant information. The specific behaviors discussed include attitude; posture; significant posture changes; grooming, personal and protective gestures; eye contact; and, verbal responses. The ability to recognize and evaluate these behaviors becomes particularly important in those cases in which the available investigative information does not definitively establish the credibility of the subject.

At the conclusion of this segment of the program, the participant will have a behavioral model for both the truthful and deceptive individual that can be used for the evaluation of subjects in future investigative interviews.
