Body Language Cues & Lie Spotting

Presented By Vanessa Greenblatt

Have you ever been speaking with someone and suddenly thought that something was amiss? You had a feeling that the person was not being altogether truthful, but you were not sure why. Was it something they said? Was it how they said it? Or was it something they did? Behavioural Analysis Specialist, Vanessa Greenblatt, of VMG Investigative Consulting, will highlight some important principles of Lie Detection, specific steps to follow, and a few Physical and Audio Cues to pay attention to. She will also delve into commonly held Lie Detection Myths that continue to circulate today and explain why they interfere with our deception detection abilities. Take your lie spotting abilities to the next level and learn to identify the signals people are sending you.
