Deception Detected is a 3-hour class designed to help increase your ability to spot deception in everyday life. You will learn to uncover underlying emotions through increasing your ability to detect microexpressions, properly identifying nonverbal gestures, and applying subtle interrogation methods. The class is rested on a foundation of research drawing from thousands of hours of academic and inde- pendent research. Participants will gain a chance to test their detection abilities via pre/post tests in addition to realtime time deception excersises with fellow participants and your instructor.
Made popular by deception research Paul Ekman, Microexpressions are split second facial expression that usually last 1/25th of a second. They are slips in emotional states and happen so quickly that the average person cannot identify them. Identifying in consistancies in these slips can be used to spot liars. The class will cover the 7 universal human emotions that can be displayed on the face and upon leaving the class you will be significantly better at identifying them in everyday life.
- a pre/post test in order to accuaretly measure your progress
- live facial expression training
- exposure to microexpression research using state of the art cameras
NONVERBAL INDICATIONS OF EMOTIONAL STATES
There is no definite nonverbal indication of lieing, there are only behaviors that tend to correlate with specific emotions that are illictied when someone deceives. This portion of the class will look at the various ways to baseline and identify peoples current emotional states. A light rub of the hand, the position of the feet & legs, the sudden stillness of the body, a slight change in pitch and other behaviors, when clustered together can be an incredibly effective method for identifying incorguent emotional states and effectivley narrowing in on deception.

UNCOVERING THE TRUTH THROUGH SUBTLE INTERROGATION
Lie detection is more of an active process then passive one. The process of detection is really two-fold. First, you need to be able to accurately discern an individuals emotional state. Second, you may need to use very subtle interrogation methods to try and uncover a lie. While everyone lies, study after study has shown that lying is one of the least desirable traits. Accusing someone of lying can immediately shut down communication. Before making a correct assumption, it is important to gather as much information as possible, you will learn just exactly how to do that.
- learn never before taught interrogation techniques
- practice your interrogation methods on class participants
- observe real time interrogations
TEST: CAN YOU TELL WHICH STORY IS TRUE AND WHY?
THE WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, AND WHY OF DECEPTION
In order to accurately spot deception it is useful to develop a relative framework for why people deceive. We will discuss the various types of lies and take a greater look at why lying is such a part of our culture. We will discuss the mediums in which people are more or less likely to lie, and discuss what types of personalities and in what situations people are more likely to lie. We will also discuss the various methods of lie detection through biofeedback. Including the polygraph, fMRI, and EEG.
