At the center of this course is the cognitive interview, a rapport-based, trauma-infused approach to dialogue with parties and witnesses designed to yield best available evidence.
The course will train participants to plan and conduct cognitive interviews, revealing more accurate and reliable evidence and information. The course is equal parts expert instruction and practical application, drawing from ATIXA’s stable of top-tier practitioners and providing ample opportunities for participants to hone their skills. Participants will benefit from direct interaction and observation with the instructors, as well as mock interviews with co-participants and strategic implementation simulations.
Why is there a fourth level course?
ATIXA’s trainees come out of Investigator Two with basic questioning skills, but the really advanced questioning is taught in Investigator Four.
I'm thinking of taking Investigator Four. Do I have to take One-Three?
The courses are sequential, but not prerequisites. If you are really skilled and experienced, you can start with Four.
