‘I know when you lie!’ – seminar

‘I know when you lie!’

Basics of Statement Analysis, FBI NATIONAL ACADEMY SUBJECT.

Tuesday, 1st December 2015, 13.00 – 14.30 in Auditorium 2

School of Law, UCLan Cyprus

Statement Analysis is the most accurate way of determining if a person is lying in a verbal or written statement. A person cannot give a lengthy deceptive statement without revealing that it is a lie. 

This is because people’s words will betray them. There are usually several ways you can phrase a statement. People will always word their statement based on all their knowledge. Therefore, their statement may contain information they did not intend to share. Even though people may want to withhold information, they will give us more information than what they realize.

The key is to listen to what people are telling you and to know what to look for in a statement.

The seminar in itself has a provocative and intriguing title and doesn’t have any similar rivals on these areas. The fact that this subject is being studied at the FBI National Academy in Quantico, USA, gives it even more
significance and importance.

Within the Law Enforcement context, Statement Analysis is used as an investigative tool to gain insight into an individual and to detect areas of possible deception.

Investigators will participate in a practical problem to use the knowledge gained through statement analysis to gain insight into a statement and, in criminal cases, to enhance the prospects of gaining confessions through the amplification of the statement.

Those participating will be issued with a UCLan Cyprus certificate of attendance.
