Identify hidden messages & deception in others, enhance your ability to analyse verbal & nonverbal behavioural cues, and develop robust questioning strategies to elicit valuable information from others.

If your role requires you to have a firm grasp of the truth, seek out deception, and obtain the full story, then Evaluating truthfulness and Credibility is the course for you.

This three-day course will teach you how to read and evaluate others through their verbal and nonverbal behaviours and use this skill to accurately evaluate their credibility or uncover any deception.

In most interactions, individuals put too much emphasis on the spoken word. This approach results in a significant loss of information and is ineffective in assessing the credibility of others.

During this program you will go far beyond just analysing the words, you will learn how to read and interpret all 5 core channels of communication and how these can be used to expose the true thoughts of others.

As well as the unique five channel approach, you will also learn about memory, and how you can work out whether a statement of an event is remembered or being constructed through scientific content analysis.

All delegates receive a graded Certificate signed by Dr. Paul Ekman on completion of the course.

More about this course...

The Evaluating Truthfulness and Credibility course covers the psychological models behind truth and lies, plus the skills required to identify ‘Hotspots’ (instances when the strain between what we are thinking and what we are feeling produce observable/audible leakage across the five channels).

The course is designed to help you to read and evaluate the degree of truthfulness and credibility in what others are communicating to you.

The courses are enriched with unique content, using videos of truth-tellers and liars from high-stake contexts such as international Embassy visa applications, scientifically validated experiments conducted by Prof Paul Ekman himself and extracts of CEOs from commercial investment contexts.

Delegates of this course will also use live practice sessions to build knowledge, skills, and application with high-quality feedback from the Paul Ekman Approved Trainers.

Agnes Mariakak
It was a fabulous training, from its design to its delivery, it balanced between practical exercises and theoretical concepts. Indispensable for anyone who wants to efficiently communicate with people. I strongly recommend it.
Teresa Cordeiro
I attended the first ETaC Certification. The training was powerful, very professional and the delivery was excellent. Nothing will be the same after this training.
Pedro Tinoco
The course was extremely useful and has supported my interviewing skills further with both witnesses and suspects. It has changed my mindset and showed that baseline is so important. The course is very impactive and I will be seeking further Paul Ekman skills.
