How do you know if someone is lying?

If you could only tell...

But you can. And we could teach you how to tell.

Triple-T offers a course named Detection of Deception, which is focussed on the following:

Statement Content Analysis

The basis of statement analysis is that recalled statements are richer in detail than fabricated statements. Through the process of scientific analysis of statements truthful and fabricated content can be identified.

The process behind this examines four components of the statement

- Parts of speech used
- Descriptive information of the statement
- Conviction with which the story is told
- The balance of the parts of the statement

Kinesics/Body Language

Better know as Body Language, this is the study of body movements that accompany communication. Kinesics is integrated in the analysis of statement veracity.  Microfacial expressions are also discussed.

The precept is that it is impossible for someone to deceive consistently through both verbal and non-verbal communication.

Who should attend this course?

This course is aimed at anyone who wishes to develop skills in detecting deception in a statement, but more so at managers that need to find the truth during interviews and hearings. Security personnel of any description will also find this course very helpful. Once the delegates have worked through the theory they will have the opportunity to practice their skills on case studies.

The following people will find this course helpful:

  • Insurance Assessors
  • Lawyers
  • Security Personnel
  • Managers and Supervisors that need to handle pre-employment screening, grievances, disciplinary hearings, stock theft, absenteeism and fraud.
  • Any one that finds themselves in a position where they need to determine the truthfulness of a statement.
