Learning objectives


Conducting an investigative interview is one of the most challenging & rewarding task that you will be called upon to perform. More often, the outcome of an investigation is determined by the success or failure of the interview. The cliché that “people choose who they will open up to” is often very true. Human behaviour is dynamic in nature and there is no one size that fits all. Therefore, knowing what makes people tick and determining the correct interview strategy to adopt at the crucial moment are the key elements to success.
