Forensic Linguistics - Finding facts for better decisions

Getting the truth isn’t easy, nor is understanding the real message. We learn at an early age to tell partial truths to avoid telling complete lies. Precise communication prevents and uncovers partial truths. Imprecise communication nurtures deception and poor decision-making. Developing special skills will help get the truth and lead to better ethical decision-making. The attendees will learn these skills through lectures and examples. Attendees will also learn the best method for obtaining uncontaminated statements, creating and preserving those statements for forensic analysis.
