Investigative Interviewing for Auditors: What Scientists Have Found Works – On-Demand

Original Recording Date: November 21st, 2016
Duration: 75 minutes

In the past 10 years, scientists have conducted studies demonstrating that some interviewing techniques commonly used by many auditors and other investigators are ineffective. At the same time, researchers have identified much better methods of interviewing witnesses that, while more commonly used in Europe, often are not known by auditors and other investigators in the United States. In this practical and entertaining session from a former U.S. Department of Justice attorney, you will learn which techniques are effective and which are not. Among other things, you will:

  • Learn how to avoid common interviewing techniques whose validity has been questioned by researchers and some courts
  • Learn how to use scientifically validated interviewing techniques proven to obtain more information from witnesses
  • Learn advanced interviewing techniques that make it easier to differentiate between truth-tellers and those who are deceptive
