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.

The ETaC course is very professionally organized and brilliantly structured so as to ensure that the information was not only delivered well but also understood and assimilated by the participants.

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.

More information 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.
As well as the unique, five channel approach to training 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.

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.
