Workshop (October 23 & 24, 2017)

STREAM 1


Bram Van de Meer - Interviewing in a Threat Assessment Context


In threat assessment practice people often possess critical information that is not recorded in any other source of information. This makes the interview one of the most important methods of in

formation gathering. But, the interview is also one of the areas where most mistakes are made, because people and their behaviour are contextual and dynamic in nature. Behaviour is often misinterpreted or miscommunicated and the interviewer not always successful in remaining the objective ‘fact finder’.

This 2-day workshop will help identify such pitfalls and difficulties that practitioners run into during their data collection. Participants will learn specific skills and techniques that will enable them to conduct more effective interviews and generate useful information from those they assess.
