Webinar Video Clip: Inductive Interviewing
Sheriff Ray Nash is back on Justice Clearinghouse for the second part of his two-part webinar special on Inductive Interview. In the previous installment of the course, he introduced concepts and provided definitions, described the core qualities of Inductive Interviewing, and provided a detailed discussion of the first three phases of the Inductive Interview System (IN2).
Sheriff Ray Nash started his law enforcement career while he was still in high school. From street patrol duties, becoming a police chief, being elected as a sheriff, to international assignments in Afghanistan. His most recent endeavors are with the Police Dynamics Institute, providing consultancy and training for businesses and government agencies, and designing the Inductive Interview System.
On this session, Sheriff Ray Nash will be talking about the succeeding phases of the Inductive Interview System. Specifics he provided on the course include:
- The fourth phase, clarification, where the interviewer tries to uncover the truth and catch lies.
- The concept of cognitive load and how it leads to verbal and behavioral leakage
- Familiarizing with verbal and behavioral leakages that give away if a person is lying.
- Understanding micro-expressions that illustrate how an individual’s behavioral leakage manifests.
- The critical fifth phase of induction where the interviewer uses induction techniques where the interviewee bites a bait and tells the truth.
- Presumptive questions as one of the more powerful techniques in interviewing where carefully crafted questions that presume guilt are asked to the interviewee.
- Divergences, the most powerful of all induction techniques where the interviewer suggests two competing scenarios and getting the interviewee to admit to the less severe scenario of the two.
- Various examples and case studies are provided to demonstrate the power and effectiveness of the inductive interview phases and techniques and how to apply them.
- A brief discussion of the sixth phase where the interviewer wraps up the interview.
- The webinar attendees asked about their concerns on:
- Building rapport outside of the interview room setting.
- Transitioning from a field interview to a more formal setting at the station.
- Techniques to obtain a sexual history from a sex offender.
