About this title


For courses in Interviewing & Interrogation.

Based on classroom tested training materials used by the author for over 15 years, this text provides a practical interviewing guide for people that plan to work in the criminal justice system. Using a systematic training approach based on scientifically validated research, the book combines “how-to” guidelines and “hands-on” practice to teach students key interviewing concepts and basic interviewing skills.

From the Back Cover:

This comprehensive text on interviewing presents the theories, techniques, and practices based on a systematic theoretical training model. Drawing on over thirty years of classroom and in-services training experience, the author has incorporated the first and second waves of interviewing research into a text that can be used for classroom instruction or as an interviewing or training manual or curriculum model. The structural foundations for the book are the fields of communication/ human relations training, police psychology, counseling psychology, forensic psychology, and, multicultural training. The approach of the book is from an evidence-based perspective. Some of the salient features of the text are:

  • Interviewing and Interrogation
  • Structured Interviews
  • Art or Science?
  • Interviewing and Interrogation Research
  • Detecting Deception
  • Non-Verbal Communication
  • Legal and Ethical Standards
  • Multicultural Interviewing
  • Interviewing Offenders
  • A Basic Skills Model
  • Interviewing Theory
  • Confrontation and Assertion Skills
  • Future Trends in Interviewing

Students or trainees progress through a seven-stage process model of skill development. Skill acquisition can be enhanced by written exercises, interview challenges, self-evaluation, and self-assessments, which are included with each chapter.
