This immersive programme teaches proven techniques and expertise to assess others’ emotions, truthfulness, and credibility accurately.

It draws on the core disciplines of Psychology, Sociology, Linguistics, Behaviour Analysis, and Criminology, delivering practical knowledge and skills for immediate application within the professional and academic world. The program was developed with busy professionals in mind by using a combination of live virtual workshops (delivered via Zoom) and on-demand online learning.

This professional diploma aims to provide a structured programme of development that provides students with the vision, insight, and techniques required to become a skilled Behaviour Analyst.

You will learn how to:

  • Make critical judgments and decisions on an individual’s credibility based on scientifically validated criteria.

  • Communicate effectively through emotional and cognitive engagement.

  • Read and understand others through verbal and non-verbal communication using the proven Six Channel Analysis System (SCAnS™): 

The SCAnS™ Model:

Facial Expressions – How emotion and cognition is conveyed through the face

Body Language – How non-verbal signals can convey how a person is thinking and feeling

Linguistic Style – How people speak, such as their stutters, pauses and fluency 

The Voice – The loudness, sharpness, and quality of the spoken words

Verbal Content – A person’s choice of words

Psychophysiology – The relationship between emotion and the body.

The Syllabus

Behaviour Analysis – Delivered via 2-day virtual workshop

The first module of the Diploma consists of an online knowledge course and a two-session practical webinar. Here you will develop your skills and ability to read and understand others through analysing verbal and non-verbal behaviours.

You will learn the SCAnR™ system and how to apply its 27 scientifically validated behavioural criteria to assess truth and lies.

Throughout the two sessions, you will practice and hone your ability to read and understand others within a safe environment and supported by our expert training team’s guidance.

Getting to the Truth – On-demand course

Behaviour Analysis Online is built on validated research conducted in real-life, high-stakes environments and a proven methodology with practical application in mind. Accessible whenever you need it, this online program delivers the best tools available to enable you to read and understand others and make critical judgments based on their verbal and non-verbal behaviour.

The course explores the multiple communication channels using the scientifically validated ‘Six Channel Analysis System’ (SCANS™) – A comprehensive toolkit for analysing and interpreting sophisticated behavioural cues.

Emotional Intelligence – On-demand course

Emotional intelligence is about the ability to recognise and understand emotions in yourself and others. It is also about the ability to use and manage emotions constructively to deal with our own wellbeing and the purpose of our interactions with others. This Module helps you explore, critique, and draw from the latest developments in emotional competency to develop your skills and abilities in this area.

Investigative Interviewing – On-demand course

This Module takes ‘interviewing’ to mean “a conversation with a purpose”. Therefore, the information that it contains can be applied to any context in which we interact with others. The module’s investigative element also explores a variety of approaches that can aid in achieving a greater depth of understanding when interacting and interviewing others. You will be introduced to different interview protocols and frameworks, including powerful yet non-oppressive EIA elicitation and interview models. The aim is to give you a range of techniques and frameworks that you can apply, as deemed relevant, within your own work and non-work contexts.
