This 75-minute online video training program is Part Three of a Three-part series concerning the Reid Technique for Child Abuse Investigations. In Part One of this series, common characteristics, attitudes, and behavioral patterns of child abuse offenders for both physical and sexual abuse were thoroughly discussed. In Part Two of this series, we discussed the Investigative Interview for Child Abuse Investigations which focused on the development of proper interview questions to be asked in a sexual abuse and physical abuse investigative interview of alleged child abuse offenders to help in the overall assessment of their possible involvement in the abusive behavior. Part Three of this series will focus on the Clarification Phases and the Reid Seven Steps of Positive Persuasion designed to motivate the guilty offender to reveal the truth about their abusive behavior in both sexual and physical abuse cases.

In this program Investigators will learn how to use the Reid Seven Steps of Positive Persuasion to motivate a guilty subject to reveal the truth about their abusive behavior. There will be a thorough discussion of the seven steps and several demonstrations of their application.

  1. Step One - State your Position
  2. Step Two - Development of Persuasive Statements (Themes)
  3. Step Three - Overcoming Resistance
  4. Step Four - Overcoming the Subject’s Fears
