The Analytic Interviewing course is internationally recognized and taught worldwide to agencies and organizations.

Analytic Interviewing incorporates the cognitive interview into the British P.E.A.C.E. model, which when followed provides a framework that enables interviewers to plan, prepare and conduct an open minded, structured and effective interview, that will not contaminate the subject. This is the bedrock of the interview process. The next ingredient in Analytic Interviewing is building rapport to encourage the subject to engage in the interview process and once engaged, using the scientifically proven memory retrieval techniques incorporated in the cognitive interview. The conditions are then in place to utilize the remaining sophisticated techniques taught in Analytic Interviewing and include reading non-verbal signs of communication, identifying hidden signs of emotion and recognizing signs of deception. Although, each of these subjects can be taught as an independent module, when combined, they make for a very powerful interviewing model.
The Cognitive Interview
The CI was developed by Drs. Geiselman and Fisher for use with co-operative witnesses and victims of crime. However, the basic protocol of the CI has been shown highly effective in interviewing potential suspects. The CI is designed to elicit large amounts of information from subjects, whether truthful or deceptive. Elements of the CI protocol, such as reverse order recall, can be used to highlight indicators of deception such as body language cues.
- Planning & Preparation
- Engage and Explain
- Account, Clarification, and Challenge
Building Rapport and Maintaining Control
The role of rapport in the interview process is one of the most important building blocks to eliciting information and finding the truth. Research in the 1970’s discovered that the really successful therapists had great rapport with their patients. This success has been replicated in other professions where interviewing plays a pivotal role.
Understanding the motivation and intent behind potential sources of information can give insight into the assessment of the individual and the interview process. This should not be seen as straightforward, given the range of factors that may be driving the individual. There is an on-going need for assessment. Such motivating factors will range anywhere from the malevolent driven by revenge or greed, to the more benevolent driven by a sense of justice or patriotism.
Signs of Deception
The training program teaches the handler to read and understand signs of hidden emotions as well as verbal and behavioral leakage that will enable him or her to better assess the accuracy and truthfulness of the informant and the information. Subtle emotional expressions, universal across cultural lines, are taught to prepare students to accurately assess the source, as well as potentially violent or difficult interactions.

The art or process of elicitation is experienced in this course. The word “experienced” is used because that is what the student called upon to do, experience through hands-on training. Through this method of learning, each individual student is asked to subject himself to sensitive personal issues and to experience the feelings like those of any person being interviewed or interrogated.
Through this experience, students gain insight into the behavioral responses of others and learn to read the symptoms they project. None of this is done to embarrass or offend any individual, but to enhance awareness.
To successfully learn to become a better interviewer, each student must participate in the training. The manual is designed to assist individuals in practicing what they have experienced and learned.
**Students will be require to complete a pre-course reading assignment. Upon course registration you will be given the assignment.

The Analytic Interview Course has been adopted by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, theOakland, California Police Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), the London Metropolitan Police, and the Serious Organized Crime Agency in the UK.
