The Human Skills Elicitation & Interviewing by Frank Stopa
"We...didn't foresee getting any...statement...due to his background (hardened, ex-prison inmate). Using all your rapport building techniques...the suspect confessed to being at the murder."
"My co-workers were aghast. None of them...imagined this suspect would make any statement at all."
"(I spent) the next 3 hours...using ONLY elicitation techniques. Not only did he admit to his wrongdoing, but he continued to assist me for days afterwards."
The Human Skills: Elicitation & Interviewing is a collection of two new books in The Human Skills series providing proven techniques for collecting the accurate information you need to make critical decisions.
