Interviewing can be complex however there is an art to unlock the information you require!

Taken from the principles that originated from the Police in England and Wales of how to interview victims, witness and suspects - Behavioural Cues have advanced Interviewing techniques to combine this framework of investigative interviewing coupled with the use of behavioural indicators.

In the 1992 through a collaboration with law enforcement, leading psychologists including Professor Ray Bull, and other academics being Professor John Baldwin developed the P.E.A.C.E model and introduced this into police interviewing methods.

Some of the topics we will cover in the Workshop: 

  • Adopting a structured interviewing technique;
  • Creating an interview or fact-finding plan / process / methodology based upon specific objectives
  • Setting the scene for the interview within a baseline environment to enable effective questioning and conversation management
  • Exploring the types of questions and when to use them
  • Identifying the behavioural indicators or cues that people display under stress
  • Connecting interviewing questions and the behavioural indicators or cues displayed   
  • Obtaining an accurate account of the facts through clarifying and challenging inconsistencies
  • Completing a summary account or record of the interview/meeting

Application within the workplace

  • Recruitment interviewing for a new position
  • An employee appraisal meeting
  • A grievance meeting, taking an account from the person reporting
