Overview: Within the societal setting, interviewers - be they, investigator, auditor, attorney, counselor of others - are the "canaries in the mind". The rapidly changing dynamics of society are actualized, most acutely, in the construct of interpersonal communication. Interpersonal communication is nowhere, more critical, than in the conduct of the interview. Critical decisions - hiring, dismissal, charges, investigation directions, audit recommendations - are made on the basis of the interview. But, are the operational, interviewing assumptions of yesterday, valid today? This eight-hour session is designed to explore those changing dynamics and consider the subsequent interviewing modifications. Topics we will explore include, but are not limited to:
     Interviewing the unfocused from an unfocused world;
     Interviewing Generation ME!;
     Detecting deception in the unremorseful;
     Gaining compliance from those inoculated against responsibility.
Content delivery methodology: The session utilizes presentation, subsequent discussion, individual self-assessment and strategy development.
This course has been approved for 8 hours of CPE by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. This course has been accredited for 8 hours of education by the New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy. Attendees will receive a copy of Don's latest book "An Endless Stream of Lies: A Young Man's Voyage into Fraud".

REGISTRATION IS OPEN UNTIL SEPTEMBER 9TH, 2016 AND THIS CLASS IS EXPECTED TO SELL OUT.  No payments will be accepted at the door. Cancellations must be made by September 9th, 2016. We will accept substitutions subsequent to September 9th.
