In 1975, research studies performed by the Rand Corporation found that the single most important factor directly affecting the outcome of any investigation is the quality of information obtained from the witness or victim of the event. It follows that proper interviewing and interrogation techniques can significantly affect the success of an investigation. Principles of Kinesic Interview and Interrogation explores the complex challenges of basic and advanced interview and interrogation techniques. It discusses the multi-phase behavioral analysis system of kinesic interviewing, and shows how this system is used to conduct more effective and efficient interpersonal communications. It covers the principles of basic kinesics, including how to determine behavior from speech and body language, and also illustrates how behavior is often exhibited in written statements. In Principles of Kinesic Interview and Interrogation, these behavioral attributes are shown to indicate the "psychological fingerprint" of a particular person, which then can be combined with diagnoses of verbal and non-verbal behavior to develop an interview and interrogation that is specifically profiled for a particular subject.
This book describes in detail the Practical Kinesic Analysis and Interrogation Phases. It shows how, in the Analysis phase, behaviors are observed and decoded to determine the subject's truthful and deceptive behaviors, and oral and/or written statements are taken and assessed. It also explains how, in the subject-specific Interrogation phase, information gained during analysis is most effectively used to obtain truthful statements from the subject.
The art of interview and interrogation is a skill that must be learned, practiced, and honed. With Principles of Kinesic Interview and Interrogation, learning basic and advanced kinesic techniques is made simpler than ever before.
"[A]n elegant and comprehensive contribution to the field of interviewing. Within the span of 360 well-indexed pages, [the author] brings together the latest ideas and techniques on interviewing. Clearly, the author understands the theater of the interview. Readers will enjoy the refreshing sojourn through the complex dynamics of interviewing. Walters, a true student of human behavior who possesses practical experience in interviewing, has produced a work that approximates the ideal of what an interview book should be about. Readers of this book will learn much form this great teacher." - FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin A volume in the Practical Aspects of Criminal & Forensic Investigation series Series edited by Vernon J. Geberth, Practical Homicide Investigation Inc., New York, USA "The ability to recognize deception is extremely important in my field, and there are many manuals of instructions on the subject. Mr. Walters', however, gives the reader/researcher the keys to EXTRACTING the verbal and non-verbal reactions the body has when stressed. It also covers what happens to the body and speech when a person is ready to confess. Since my introduction to Mr. Walters' book, my confession rate has sky rocketed! I obtain solid witness statements and when conducting internal investigations, officers come right out and 'fess up' rather than be interrogated. All my awards over the last three years including the 1998 Officer of the Year for my agency, I owe to this book." - Jim Miles, Police Investigator, Columbia, South Carolina on Amazon.com "Without any hesitation, I would like to say this book is the best I have seen." - Jong Ryul Kim, Senior Prosecutor, Republic of South Korea "I find itcompelling to the point that I have trouble with the concept that any officer or investigator could function properly without this type of information. I find the book to be straightforward, direct, and the text content does a good job of verifying the subject matter to an empirical level of understanding. The pictures also bring to life the point being madeGreat reading. It will be a necessary tool in every investigators kit." - Harold Jones, 24 Year Ohio Police Officer and High Tech Crime Investigator "The use of clear and relevant photo examples coupled with the concrete descriptions of nonverbal behaviors and their underlying meanings, gives the reader a great deal of insight into the process of deciphering truth from deception." - Crime and Justice International, December 2002
