Overview

How do you interpret a person's behavior during their interview? Some people say it's an innate quality that can't be taught. But anyone who's read Stan Walters' Principles of Kinesic Interview and
Interrogation
knows that is FALSE. The overwhelming success of the first edition and the numerous success stories credited to the book prove that the art of kinesic interview, or behavioral analysis, is indeed learnable, and Walters shows you how to master it.

Why are some interviewers more successful than others? Why do certain techniques work only part of the time? Why did the subject confess? Why didn't he confess?
With information based on firsthand observations from over 900 interviews and interrogations, Principles of Kinesic Interview and Interrogation, Second Edition provides even more insight than the bestselling first edition into how people behave during interviews, what their behaviors reveal, and why they exhibit those mannerisms.

New to this edition:

· Extensive references, including law enforcement magazines and peer-reviewed journals

· 50% more high quality photos depicting various nonverbal symptoms

· Advances in the area of kinesic statement analysis, with more examples

· Discussion of the phenomenon of false confessions, including contributing factors

· A new chapter addressing the basic concepts of interview and interrogation, making the book more rounded and suitable for beginners

· A short section on schizophrenia, brain disease, clinical depression, and suicidal personalities and their behaviors

Explore the complex challenges of basic and advanced interview and interrogation techniques. Determine behavior from body language, speech, and written statements. Thousands of readers gained invaluable skills from the first edition.

    Recognize Deceptive Signals in Speech & Body Language

    This thoroughly researched and practical book was written by Stan Walters, a retired police interrogation specialist with over 25 years' experience. The purpose of his book is to help interrogators rely on highly successful and proven techniques in recognizing deceptive behaviors in speech quality, speech content, and especially body language. Too often, Walters observed other questioning officers depend on 'gut instinct', racial bias, intimidation, or pre-conceived notions of the interviewee's guilt. Walters admits that police are surprisingly able to solicit false confessions, especially from mentally deficient or emotionally weak interviewees. So, his ultimate goal is to help police identify the real perpetrators of crimes via the perpetrator's own truthful confession of guilt. In the first theoretical half of the book, Walters introduces kinesic theory (i.e. recognizing non-verbal signals) and the five stages of stress response (anger, depression, denial, bargaining, acceptance). Then he goes on to explain how these stress response stages can be identified in interviewee subjects and provides 90 photographs of subjects' body language movements. In the second practical half of the book, Walters gives specific instructions on how to conduct interrogations, especially by customizing each interview according to the interviewee's personality type. He also explains the pitfalls of what many 'traditional' interrogators do wrong and how to avoid them. In addition, the interviewer and interviewee must speak the same native language and come from the same culture - often a problem for military interrogators. This is an excellent practical textbook on how to conduct and secure a (truthful) confession, given a patient, practiced, and conscientious interviewer. Walters admits, however, it still takes practice and involves a lot of hard work - always reading interviewees' behaviors.

    Use in the medical field

    I used to have issues retrieving accurate information from the patient. This book was fantastic, altough it had to be adjusted for the health care industry. I also found it helpful in regard to interviewing for employment. I love this book & recomend it to any person who wants to ' know ' what people are thinking or want people to ' think ' a certain thing. Worth the money & better than any textbook i have found - Thanks
