LIE DETECTION DURING THE INTERVIEW AND INTERROGATION PROCESS: A PSYCHOSOCIAL CRIMINAL APPROACH
Lie detection is an important skill for any representative of the law involved in the interview and interrogation process. Unfortunately, there is much misinformation regarding what type of lie detection methods work. This paper is a review of the most important psychosocial criminal research on lie detection and identification the most effective methods. The method of lie detection by reading facial expressions (particularly micro-expressions) is with the conclusion that it is not an effective method. I propose that, considering what the scientific research has unveiled thus far, lie detection methods based on thorough information gathering and comparative analysis work best. Finally, I provide some specific recommendations on effective ways to apply such methods during the interview and interrogation process.
