An introduction to Evaluating Truth and Credibility




In this course we will see how the face provides a lot of information to help us distinguish truth and lies, together with the other channels:

  • Body
  • Voice
  • Verbal style
  • Verbal content

The science of truth and lies comes together into this one-day highly interactive, effective workshop that will feature realistic scenarios for the delegates to test their skills using an adaptation of the original Paul Ekman truth/lie research studies.

Course Outline

The session is interactive and you need no previous knowledge in this subject. You will also test yourself at the start and during the training using a micro-expression training tool created by Dr Ekman and by reviewing videos clips and practical truth/lie scenarios.

The course is structured as follows:

  • Introduction
  • Lies and truth defined
  • Science versus myth
  • Psychological models for truth and lies
  • Emotions – the essentials
  • The face and emotions
  • Experimental study – applying your skills ‘live’
  • Summary and review.

We use a wide range of methods with small group workshops and lively presentations to make this fun, interactive, effective and engaging. We will also be carrying out data driven research on truth and lies during this pilot programme.
